About Us

The Northern Ireland Music Therapy Trust was established on 26th July 1990 by Dr Michael Swallow OBE.

Since then we have helped thousands of people, from children with depression to people who are terminally ill.

Our therapists are skilled, enthusiastic and excited about what they do. So in 2015 we decided to reinvent the charity’s image to reflect that better – and Every Day Harmony was born. In a crowded charity sector, we also needed something that would stand out and be instantly recognisable.

We are passionate about, and committed to supporting, people who find communication and interaction difficult. This may be for a defined period in someone’s life or as the result of a lifelong condition. We believe that because music is a fundamental part of being human, it crosses all barriers. Year after year and person after person we see the evidence of that.

Our aim now is to grow, so that we can reach as many people as possible.

The NI Music Therapy Trust remains our official name for business purposes. We are a company limited by guarantee and recognised by the Inland Revenue. We are managed by a Board of Directors.

Our vision:

To see every child, young person and adult in Northern Ireland receive the level of music therapy service that meets their need.
