Harmoni Cymru CIC



Since 2018, Harmoni Cymru CIC has worked in hospitals across South Wales to encourage social interaction, improve ward environments and to provide opportunities for the use of music as a tool within care.


The Directors of Harmoni Cymru are still committed to this cause and are each individually continuing to work in a variety of settings for the benefit of patients.


Regrettably, however, the Directors have decided that Harmoni Cymru, as a Community Interest Company, is no longer the appropriate legal framework to facilitate this important work. The Directors no longer feel that the governance, legal and financial obligations of operating a CIC are manageable or appropriate for the work that we do.


For this reason, with regret, Harmoni Cymru CIC ceased trading on 4 July 2023. It will apply for voluntary strike off from Companies House by the end of 2023.


Harmoni Cymru remains financially solvent and all outstanding bills have been paid. Any potential outstanding creditors should contact Harmoni Cymru as soon as possible before 24th October 2023, at which point the company’s final accounts will be produced.


Harmoni Cymru CIC is a not-for profit organisation bringing arts in health and music therapy services to people of all ages and to address a range of needs. 

Established in 2018, Harmoni Cymru CIC grew from a partnership with the Cardiff and Vale Health Board Charity, with whom we developed our ward residency programme. This involves musicians engaging patients, visitors and staff in weekly interactive music sessions. These sessions aim to encourage social interaction, improve ward environments and to provide opportunities for the use of music as a tool within care. 

Since July 2019, Harmoni Cymru has also been able to also offer music therapy interventions. Music therapy is a HCPC registered profession which uses music as a tool within a therapeutic relationship to explore a wide range of needs and aims - including physical, emotional, cognitive and social needs of individuals or groups.
