Charity - The Amber Trust
The Amber Trust was created to help blind and partially sighted children who have a talent or love for music. The charity provides music lessons, musical therapy, equipment and concert tickets to a large number of children throughout the UK. For some, learning to play an instrument or to sing can add immeasurably to their lives. For others, many of whom have severe learning difficulties, music therapy may offer a lifeline, helping them to reach out in a dark and confusing world. With many blind children in the UK living in relative poverty, they suffer a double disadvantage. Their families cannot afford to give them the musical experiences that can transform their lives – this is where Amber can make a real difference.
