Since 2016, Nordoff Robbins has celebrated the power of music with Get Loud, alongside founding partner SSE, and some of the most influential names in music. They work with music therapists to help change lives, and have raised an incredible £280,000 so far with Get Loud! This has helped deliver over 30,000 music therapy sessions to thousands of vulnerable people across the UK.
This year, Enter Shikari, All Saints, Lisa Stansfield, The Darkness, Everything Everything, Katie Melua, The Skints, Hot Dub Time Machine, The Beat feat. Ranking Roger, Gilbert O’Sullivan and Nina Nesbitt are getting loud for Nordoff Robbins.
Get Loud 2018 has seen a record number of sign-ups to their mailing list and many of the sessions have sold out in record time. The charity was featured on BBC 6 Music this week where Jo Carter and Mike from Everything Everything spoke about the fantastic work the charity is doing on the Shaun Keaveny show.

One of the people Nordoff Robbins aims to help is Sadru. At the age of 18, Sadru was diagnosed with brain cancer. He was left feeling very vulnerable and isolated until music therapy gave him a chance to feel like himself again. Here he is talking about the song which gives him strength.
