Voices Foundation works with teachers and school communities to transform music education in schools, supporting children’s wider skill development and wellbeing through accessible and inclusive singing programmes. We provide Continuing Professional Development and Learning for educators, inspiring content for parents and in-depth research and evaluation. Together, we can ensure that every child is able to find their voice through the power of singing.

Voices Foundation (VF) was established 27 years ago. Our founder, Suzi Digby OBE, was driven by the knowledge that music, and singing in particular, can have a transformative impact on children’s development. In order to reach as many children as possible the decision was taken to focus on the education system, working with and through the statutory obligation to teach music and the national curriculum framework.

Since our early days testing our approach in a small number of schools in London, VF has made enormous strides towards helping as many children as possible unlock their musical ability, develop core
skills and improve their wellbeing. We now work with 25,000 children each year and more than 900 teachers, and we have ambitions to make an even greater impact for children, particularly for those
experiencing disadvantage.

We have an engaged and dynamic Board of Trustees and an experienced and passionate team. We are looking for a new Chief Executive to continue to drive the organisation forward, delivering against our 2020-23 strategy and setting the direction for the next exciting chapter in our development.
