Live Music Now is a charity working and campaigning to create inclusive, measurable social impact through the power of music. Our professional musicians work with older people (many living with dementia), children and young people facing disabling barriers, families living through challenges; and carers and key workers. By connecting people through music and evaluating its impact, we advance musical practice and change how we understand and support underrepresented and vulnerable people in our society. Our work is evidenced as enhancing health and wellbeing and building skills, confidence and engagement.
Live Music Now reaches over 85,000 people a year and trains and employs 250 professional musicians. You can find our musicians in care homes, hospitals, community settings, schools, libraries and hospices in England, NI and Wales and in Scotland with our sister organisation Live Music Now Scotland.

We offer a hybrid model of activities incorporating in-person concerts and residencies alongside a digital offer.
