Who we are

Good Vibrations changes lives through communal music-making.


We work with some of the most marginalised people in the UK, in prisons, secure hospitals and in the community. Our expert team of facilitators support participants to grow in confidence, deepen their communication and social skills, and develop more positive self-identities. They connect with their creativity and musicality, find community with others, and build a sense of hope for the future.


The role

​We are looking for enthusiastic individuals to expand our existing Trustee Board, to bring their experience and fresh, innovative and realistic ideas to the charity.​

We are looking for people with experience of one (or more) of the following areas:

  • Fundraising
  • Lived experience of challenging circumstances / complex needs
  • The Criminal Justice System
  • Business development
  • Financial management
  • Strategy

We would especially welcome applications from people with lived experience of the issues pertaining to our participants.

This is a voluntary governance role for which your travel expenses would be covered. Trustees are asked to commit to 4 Board meetings in London, 1 strategic development day, preparation and subcommittee membership. They are also asked for help by sharing their skills on developmental projects. We are particularly interested in people who have experienced the issues participants of our courses have experienced.

We are best known for using the Indonesian gamelan, a magnificent set of bronze gongs, xylophones and drums. We use communal music-making to support vulnerable people in challenging circumstances to develop transferable life and work skills and to forge fulfilling, constructive lives.

We have an outstanding track record, with the impact of our work evidenced through nine independent pieces of academic research, including by Cambridge University and the University of London.

Bill Bailey supports our work as a patron. We are a Registered UK Learning Provider and OCNL Qualification Centre and hold National High Secure Prison Effective Intervention
