Music In Offices proudly supports a number of charities
We are proud to have supported a number of charities over the years and have facilitated and developed ongoing partnerships. Coming into our tenth year we have chosen to focus on supporting these four charities below who all share our ethos of connecting, creating musical opportunities and building strong relationships.
Dedicated to tackling loneliness and isolation amongst older people through regular face to face contact.
Supported by a network of volunteers, the charity organises monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for small groups of older people, aged 75 and over, who live alone. Offering a regular and vital friendship link every month.
“We are delighted that Music in Offices supports Contact the Elderly. Their network is invaluable and we benefitted hugely from their introduction to Irwin Mitchell.”
Christian Grobel, Chair, Contact the Elderly
Youth Music is a national charity which acts as an umbrella body investing in over 350 music-making projects across the country every year, giving around 75,000 disadvantaged children and young people the
opportunity to make music regularly in their local community.
“We are delighted that Music in Offices continues to support Youth Music, transforming the lives of children and young people in challenging circumstances through music-making projects across England. It was great that Debenhams and Channel 4 chose to support us in their Christmas choir performance.”

Mayors Music Fund
MMF awards four year scholarship programmes to talented primary school children from disadvantaged backgrounds at a critical time of their musical learning. All scholars are loaned instruments and given tuition and performance opportunities alongside professional musicians.
“The Mayors’ Music Fund is delighted to be supported by Music In Offices and has been a valued partner of their Office Choir of the Year Competition”
Chrissy Kinsella, CEO, Mayors Music Fund
Royal Voluntary Service
Royal Voluntary Service wants to help create a society where everyone feels valued and involved whatever their age.
We are one of the largest volunteer organisations in the country. Our 35,000 volunteers help older people stay active, independent and able to continue to contribute to society. They do this by providing practical and emotional help where and when it’s needed.
“Music in Offices compered and supported the organisation of a sparkling Christmas event at Grosvenor Chapel in Mayfair to celebrate our Sing Your Heart Out campaign. They recruited choirs from a variety of different workplaces and the obvious joy and talent of the singers made our event really special. We found Music in Offices thoughtful and professional in their approach and it has been a pleasure to work with them”
Catherine Johnstone, Chief Executive of Royal Voluntary Service
