Chiltern Music Therapy are delighted to announce the launch of a new music therapy group in Aylesbury local community. This exciting new project is open to all adults, with mental health issues, or those who seeking emotional or psychological support. This lively and energetic group provides a supportive and fully inclusive environment, with no previous musical experience necessary. The group aims to connect people together through music and singing, and improve the lives of those socially isolated in the community. Attending this group can be extremely valuable to those who suffer from anxiety and a growing lack of self-confidence who are living alone.
Chiltern Music Therapy’s Jamming Group in High Wycombe has been a great success, and this group in Aylesbury is set to follow in its footsteps.
The group is part-subsidised by Prevention Matters, an organisation which brings together the County Council, the NHS, the District Councils, and the voluntary sector in a joined-up approach to helping people stay independent and active. They also provide support to those who are recovering from an illness, and those who are unable to get out and about. You can find out more about Prevention Matters by visiting the link below.
Rebecca Pryce, Director of Services, says, ‘We are delighted to be launching our new community music group, which aims to encourage socialisation, integration and community networking by reaching out to people living in our community who may experience isolation. We hope that the joint collaboration with Prevention Matters will allow these valuable services to benefit the community on a long-term basis.’
The group will take place at the Healthy Living Centre (full address below) every Wednesday at 3pm. The cost to attend is £3.50 each week to fund the excellent facilities and equipment offered. To refer yourself or someone you know, just contact Rebecca on the details below. Chiltern Music Therapy look forward to Jammin’ with you!
