Make a Move is a charity founded on the principles of music and movement making people HAPPY! The idea is simple, but it is in the PROCESS where you can see Make a Move's magic. We design and run customised sessions and projects for disadvantaged and vulnerable groups from children to adults to those over 65 (the new 50!). We do this by instilling an absolute awareness of the bond between BODY and MIND, inspiring laughter, encouraging a sense of fun and promoting happiness.

Our Projects

At Make a Move we work with a wide range of people which include children, mums, older people as well as businesses and organisations. We ensure and encourage creative movement, music, therapeutic dance and talking therapy are all used in innovative combinations to encourage healing of mind and body. Make a Move’s work is founded and guided by evidence-based research. To find out more about the projects and areas we work in please follow the link below or continue to browse the website.
