The judges commented: ‘They completely bowled us over by the way they have ensured that the services of arts therapists continue to be provided in a commissioning-dominated world. They give a powerful voice to clients and therapists and make it so much easier for commissioners to buy services from arts therapists.’
Our specialist team of therapists supports some of the most vulnerable patients in private and NHS settings. Our Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) work supports children and adults with acquired brain injury, complex disabilities and those requiring post-surgical rehabilitation.
“Chroma have worked closely with us to understand our needs and define and develop our neurologic music therapy provision to meet these. As a consequence, we are delighted with our neurologic music therapist who has fully integrated into our service and is very much a part of our team. Chroma have been an inspiration to work with and we look forward to continuing our collaboration with them.”

Chroma work with local authorities across the UK to support families and their adopted children. Funded by the Adoption Support Fund, we offer a holistic, evidence-based and cost effective therapeutic package close to where families live. Art, drama and music therapy have proven very effective interventions to support adopted children and their parents understand complex behaviours and difficult emotions.
“I have found the art therapy intervention over recent months to have been highly positive in our present situation of family tension, with a transgender teenage child and an older sibling who exhibits high levels of verbal violence and threat. The art therapy, under Chroma’s very skilful guidance, has made a major contribution to our capacity to deal with what has been at times a critical situation.” – Parent funded via ASF
