Music As Therapy International - Community

Capacity Building:
A Hub and Spoke Approach

Music as Therapy International trains caregivers around the world, providing them with the skills, resources and confidence to use core music therapy techniques to change the way they care for marginalised, vulnerable people.  Their ‘hub and spoke’ approach prioritises supporting regional practitioners, many of whom go on to share their skills with increasing numbers of local caregivers in countries including Romania, Rwanda and Occupied Palestinian Territories.

Since the charity was established over 20 years ago, its focus on sharing the power of music has been proven to overcome boundaries of language, literacy and disability to improve communication and strengthen wider care practice. The BBT Communities grant will allow Music as Therapy International to continue championing locally-led initiatives and set up new sustainable programmes in these deserving communities.
