The  Treehouse Children’s Unit at Stepping Hill Hospital has 46 beds and cares for children aged between six months and 16 years with a wide range of medical needs. Over the last few years, the young patients have enjoyed visits from music therapist Emma Black, who has 15 years of experience working in hospital, care and special school settings. Children can have  music and songs brought to their beds, and where possible, enjoy short concerts in the day room.  Playing uplifting and gentle music to poorly children has been shown to improve mood and mental wellbeing, which can in turn help to support their physical recovery.  Music on the ward also benefits visiting family members and aids their interaction with their children, reducing anxiety, as well as lifting the mood of the staff on the unit. The hospital now need our help to enable Emma to continue visiting once a month over the next year, benefiting around 550 sick children and their families.
