Music Relief Foundation (MRF) is a registered youth charity formed in 2011 by our founder and CEO Magdalene Adenaike FRSA, registered as a Limited by Guarantee with Companies House (09408878) in Jan. 2015 and registered as a charity (1185747) in Oct. 2019. The charity is headquartered in Thornton Heath Croydon, South London. For ten years, an organisation serving the grassroots community and has firmly established itself as youth experts supporting young people and their families. As our name suggests, we harness the power of music and the arts to address youth issues and encourage young people to explore their natural talents, creativity, curiosity and confidence. Our service delivery reflects the needs of the young people and is tailored to support them through Music Learning and Music Making / Schools / Families and Communities. As a result of the global pandemic, we switched our services to tailored hybrid sessions to cultivate and develop increased motivation and aspirations and widen our reach. We are leading voice for youth training and arts support service in the UK.
