Music in Hospitals aims to improve the quality of life for people of all ages in care settings across the whole of Scotland through the provision of professional live music. Concerts take place in hospitals, hospices, care homes, day centres and special needs schools, bringing the benefits of live music to people who need it most.
In Scotland, we currently have over 150 professional musicians who perform on behalf of the charity. From traditional Scottish bands to solo musicians, string quartets and funk bands, we aim to provide live music for all tastes.
Our musicians' work couldn't happen without our amazing supporters who raise the money that funds it. We receive support from The Scottish Government, charitable trusts & foundations, businesses, local authorities, individual donors, volunteers and our Friends of Music in Hospitals. We are hugely grateful for this support - it enables us to arrange over 1,600 live concerts every year.
From sponsored triathlons and treks to fundraising concerts & coffee mornings, we are fortunate to have people willing to give their time and a great deal of energy to help bring live music to people in care. There are lots of ways you too could help to help raise funds for MiH. Whether it's a bake sale, a sponsored swim, a non-uniform day or a skydive, we'd love to hear from you and support you all the way. Share your fundraising story with us and we can help spread the word about what you're doing.
If you're someone to whom music has given pleasure, stirred emotions and memories, or given a sense of wellbeing: we need your support, now more than ever, to ensure we can continue to provide these special moments for people who will need them the most. Legacies are especially valuable to us as they help us to make future plans for the development of our service in Scotland.
