To celebrate Carers Week, we are hosting a relaxed musical performance for parents and carers of children & young people with Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND) in Manchester.

We know that many of us parent-carers may have little or no access to live music. With the help of Music in Hospitals & Care (MiHC), we aim to create meaningful moments and memories of joy, relaxation and engagement together with their wonderful, friendly musician(s) and fellow parents & carers.

The session will be provided free of charge and will include a light lunch & refreshments.

Our Musicians

Our guest performer for the day will be The Cheeky Charlies, a jazz/swing duo that has performed a good number of Music in Hospitals and Care (MiHC) concerts.

Here’s a video of them performing Chattanooga Choo Choo for MiHC back in December 2017:

This free concert for parents and carers was made possible through Music in Hospitals & Care, with thanks from Awards for All – England.

Music in Hospitals & Care is a charity providing live music sessions for people who are receiving care or treatment in health and care settings across the UK.

About Carers Week

Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face, and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK. It also helps people who don’t think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as carers and access much-needed support.

It is celebrated on 6-12 June this year and the theme is “Make Caring Visible, Valued and Supported.”
