Paritor support Honeylands Music Therapy Service Honeylands League of Friends

We are delighted to announce that Paritor have adopted Honeylands Music Therapy Service Honeylands League of Friends as the Charity of the Year for 2013.

Paritor have already been in talks with the Honeylands Music Therapist and the Honeylands League of Friends, establishing fundraising plans for the coming year.

Paritor received a high number of applications for our charity of the year partnership, but it was the Honeylands Music Therapy Service that managed to gain the team’s vote. The Music Therapy Service supports pre school aged children with complex special needs. Some have little or no social interaction and can find language impossible. For these young children, music can provide a wonderful way to encourage their development and engagement with the world around them.  The Music Therapy Service  allows them to develop their social skills such as communication, listening, sharing and responding. At present, the Music Therapy Service deals with 35 patients, however, a further 20 still remain on the waiting list.

Despite receiving NHS funding for the centre, the Music Therapy Service is not included, and their funding from other sources has now been withdrawn.

The Partnership between Paritor and the Honeylands Music Therapy Service, Honeylands League of Friends will last for 12 months from April 2013 to March 2014. The aim of the partnership will be more than just fundraising, providing greater emphasis on a strategic, mission-focused, cross sector partnership. One of the most essential elements of this partnership will be support into future years. Therefore a strategic plan will be developed to pool their varied resources, including know-how, networks and brand, working together to achieve common goals.

On the announcement of the adoption Simon Dutton, the Managing Director of Paritor said: “As part of our on-going commitment to support charities in the local area, we are truly delighted that our staff have voted Honeylands  Music Therapy Service  to be our chosen charity in 2013. Throughout the next 12 months our staff will come together to raise funds through a variety of events and activities, as well as aiding them in achieving a higher profile. We look forward to working with Honeylands Music Therapy Service, Honeylands League of Friends and supporting them”.
