There are many ways you can help Coda deliver its unique music service to the local community and with our work in growing demand we need your help now more than ever because while we work hard to secure grants from Trusts and Foundations we also need donations from individuals and business to survive.

With no core revenue grant funding to help us cover our running costs, our fee-paying students and funds raised for specific purposes help us meet our overheads but we remain very heavily reliant on donations from individual supporters to help us provide our unique services, from music therapy for disabled children, young people and adults to the community outreach projects that are so highly valued in the local area.

If you feel you can help, please know that every penny goes directly to support Coda’s work. All donations are very gratefully received and invested wisely to maintain, improve and extend our excellent standards both at the Centre and out in the community.

Helping raise funds in your local community

Wherever you live there are lots of ways to raise funds towards our Music Therapy service which helps disabled people learn and communicate in so many new ways, and to our bursary fund to help individuals and families wishing to learn and make music and who do not always have the resources to do so.
