As an active membership charity, we are always keen to welcome new members with ideas and enthusiasm to advise our Board of Trustees on the direction we are heading, the progress we are making, and how we are facing up to the challenges of the service we deliver. We would love to hear from anyone with an interest in contributing to what we can achieve together.
About Our Membership
Since 2008, Key Changes has been delivering its highly valued Music Therapy service to vulnerable children and adults across Hampshire and the south east.
Despite the challenging circumstances for all charitable organisations since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, our Board of Trustees have an optimistic and ambitious vision for how we Survive, Endure and Thrive going forward. A key part of the first steps in achieving the vision is to revive and build our membership to help us:
· Raise awareness of our work in the community
· Build on recent successes in raising funds from a broader range of sponsors
· Develop our service with the needs of our beneficiaries foremost in our minds
· Support the Trustees to develop a long term future and a robust business and
· Create a pool of potential future Trustees.

Importance Of Members to Key Changes
Governing the charity is its Board of Trustees, committed to supporting the work of the charity and it’s 4 part-time administrative employees. 2 new Patrons have come on board since the Spring, from the worlds of music therapy research, and of opera singing. In early 2021 a new Membership scheme was launched, to help the Board steer the charity forward. The membership was invited to the March ’21 AGM, to endorse the Board’s vision for Key Changes, and to comment on both a re-branding of the logo and on the design of the new website.
