Rhythmix is an award-winning music, social welfare and education charity working with some of the most vulnerable people in the South East of England.
Our mission is to revolutionise healthcare and wellbeing outcomes through innovative and radical musical activities under the guidance of talented, expert musicians. We seek out challenging and extraordinary places where music doesn't happen, but has the potential to make the most difference.
We deliver our work in partnership with services that support people who are having a difficult time including with mental health, illness or disability. Over the last year our strategic partners have included 7 NHS Trusts, 20 special schools and 7 Child and Adolescent Mental Health teams. In the last 12 months we worked with 6,180 people across 2,135 music-making interactions. We take music to our participants: 96% of interactions take place outside of a music or cultural venue.
Our work has ben recognised through a wide range of awards, including: the Creative and Cultural Skills Award, Children and Young People Now 2017, The Sussex Business Award for creativity in 2018, Charity Today Award 2018 and Music Teacher Award 2018. We have also been finalists for many others including the HSJ and Nursing Times Awards.
We have a small management team of eight people, who manage the day to day work of the charity, with a key focus on fundraising and progrmame management support to our team of more than 30 freelance tutors and service deliverers.
