Target Housing have been delivering music therapy, supported by Mama Africa Rotherham. The project began at the beginning of March for our service users in Rotherham. Individuals are given the opportunity to play drums, guitar and other instruments as a form of relaxation, as well as teaching them a new skill and giving them something productive to do with their time. This therapy can help with mental ill health, reducing isolation and combating boredom.
