STRIKING A CHORD WITH HEALTH AND WELLBEING DRIVEN FROM THE HEART

The real benefits and positive effects of music are the foundation of our purpose, which is to enable members of our community to participate in high quality, fun activities in a supportive, safe and social environment. 

MUSIC IN TUNE WITH HEALTH AND WELLBEING

'A deep understanding of the fulfilling and rewarding powers of music underline my determination to bring about positive change.

Swell music has enabled me to connect with other likeminded people and use our wealth of experience to bring about valuable opportunities for vulnerable members of the community here in East Suffolk.’

Founder: Helen Hayes.
