Sunbeams Music Trust
Sunbeams provides Music For Life® and Music For Dignity® Projects to severely disadvantaged and disabled people in Cumbria to improve their quality of life and self-esteem through the creative freedom of music.
Founded by Cumbrian born Harpist and Singer, Annie Mawson MBE in 1992, Sunbeams provides Community Music to children and adults with a wide range of disabilities and complex medical needs including physical disabilities and mental health problems, Alzheimers and senile dementia, cerebral palsy, autism, Down’s Syndrome, sensory impairments, emotional and behavioural disturbance and profound multiple disabilities.
A team of specially trained community musicians and volunteers deliver over 60 live music workshops in 53 project-venues per month transforming the lives of our beneficiaries through our Music For Life® and Music For Dignity® Programmes.
By tackling the serious challenges raised by social exclusion, deprivation, ill-health and inequality, Sunbeams is ‘reaching the unreachables’.
