Missions, Values & Supporters


Coda uses music and the arts as tools for personal and social change, providing a place to learn, train and develop, and offering help and support through participation and creative therapy.

We make a positive impact in our local community and tackle inequality by providing universal access to a broad range of artistic and creative services and by delivering innovative education and health programmes .
