When the members of the Culture Music Appreciation Group had to face the reality that the funding for group from Norfolk County Council was coming to an end they formed an Unincorporated Association, elected a committee and wrote a constitution, which enabled them to apply for funding.
The group has met regularly at Norwich Art Centre since January 2016. The members of the group are all people who live with mental ill health they find that through sharing their interest and enjoyment of music it helps them manage their mental health and can reduce social isolation.
The funding will enable the group to run another 40 sessions starting this month.
A Musician who is also a mental health professional facilitates the group.
The group was originally set up and run by the Restoration Trust who has supported the members to form their own association.
