Kiddleydivey has been running for over 19 years in Buckinghamshire by the founder Sally Murphy. Due to my love of music and a passion to make a difference, I brought Kiddleydivey to Cumbria in April 2015 with fantastic response !
The many wonderful props and instruments as well as specially edited songs from different eras, all help to promote movement and stimulate through music making the sessions fun, lively and entertaining for all. Staff and family members enjoy them too!
Kiddleydivey consistently research and develop its many musical themed activities and sessions that have been created by a music therapist and doctor of musicology. I visit many different establishments care homes, day centres and community groups.
So, what are the benefits?
- Positive changes in moods and emotional states
- A sense of control over life
- Stimulation that promotes interest even when other approaches are ineffective
- Opportunities to interact socially with others
- Improvement in memory functioning
- Increased mobility
- A wonderful time had by all !!

Ann has attended Stobars Hall for quite some time now and it certainly shows a positive effect with our residents. Our residents enjoy Ann's` visits and the general music therapy of which she provides to us and we look forward to seeing Ann once again.
With much thanks Teresa and Dawn, Whitehaven.
