“EVERYBODY has the right to communicate, and music can enable these children to, sometimes for the first time.”

It might sound obvious now, but when Jessie’s Fund started working in children’s hospices nearly 20 years ago, there was no music therapy provision in any UK children’s hospice.

The pioneering charity, which helps seriously ill and disabled children to communicate through music, is one of three nominees for this year’s Yorkshire Children of Courage Awards (YCCA) group award.
