Organisation type: 
Geographical remit: 


We bring live music making to the heart of healthcare to support the wellbeing of the whole hospital community; patients, families and hospital staff. We support people of all ages and focus particularly on children, young people and older people living with conditions like dementia. We turn clinical spaces into cultural places so that people can experience the joy and levity, connect with each other and find a way of expressing themselves.


At Wishing Well we

- work in partnership with NHS healthcare settings and services to create long running music programmes that bring the power of creativity right to patients bedsides.

-run music groups in psychiatric wards for young and older people.

-offer training to young musicians so that they can build a portfolio career that includes using their talents to connect with people in a way that radically improves their wellbeing

-run education programmes for 1st and 2nd year medical students to help them understand the vital role that music making plays in hospital environments
