Support our Appeals


Christmas Funding Appeal

This year our Christmas Funding Appeal aims to support the delivery of programmes in the Health & Wellbeing sector. The four projects we work on every day ensure that the joy and power of live music reaches all of those who do not have the opportunity to attend NCH regular concerts. These projects are delivered in 20 counties across Ireland and reach more than 8,000 people each year. They are;

Music in Mind

Designed in partnership with Mental Health Ireland, this programme is tailored to provide percussion and choral workshops to service users of mental health support centres around Ireland.

Health & Harmony

This programme works with Alzheimer’s day and respite care centres to bring live music to their clients with active participation encouraged.

National Rehabilitation Hospital

Bringing music to those unable to attend NCH, we provide monthly music workshops, performances and ward visits to the National Rehabilitation Hospital for patients who have suffered a physical or cognitive impairment.

Music in Children’s Hospitals

Running since 2009, this programme brings entertainment, stress relief and joy to sick children in hospitals and hospices throughout the country by bringing music directly to the children on the ward and in the classroom.
Learn more about this initiative

Whether you know a family member or friend living with dementia, a niece, nephew or neighbour’s child in hospital, someone living with mental health difficulties, or recovering from Acquired Brain Injury following an accident or illness, your donations will make a difference. Music has the power to lift people up, to provide joy and escape, to give distraction and peace in difficult times. It is only with your support that projects like these can take place, and it is only with your support that we can ensure they continue.

Can you help?

Urgent funds are needed to ensure that music is shared with children in hospitals, people living with mental health difficulties, patients recovering from debilitating injury and people living with dementia.

Your donations will make it possible to bring joy and wellbeing through music this Christmas.

Here’s how you can help:
