At The Amber Trust, we believe that visual impairment and other disabilities should not prevent children and young people accessing appropriate musical opportunities.
The Amber Trust was founded in 1995 with the aim to provide blind and partially sighted children, including those with additional disabilities, the best possible chance to meet their musical needs and aspirations.
We have grown to become the only national charity dedicated to supporting visually impaired children with their musical development and education. We aim to enhance the lives of as many of the 25,000 visually impaired children in the UK as possible through music, and to promote high quality music provision.
For some children, learning to play an instrument or to sing can add immeasurably to their lives. With the right encouragement, these children can develop their talents to remarkable ends, breaking down barriers, promoting social inclusion and helping to fulfil their potential as individuals and musicians.
