Our organisation gained legal status as a company in July 2010 and charitable status in England and Wales in August 2010.
From that point on BAMT, the British Association for Music Therapy developed alongside the ongoing work of the Association of Professional Music Therapists and the British Society for Music Therapy until the date of transfer on 6th April 2011 when the prior organisations ceased to do business.
BAMT has a membership of music therapy trainees, practitioners and those who are qualified but not practising in the UK and an associate membership of individuals, organisations and institutions around the world who support music therapy. BAMT works with the profession to provide the public with information and insight into the health benefits of music therapy and the means by which therapy can be accessed.
The Memorandum and Articles of BAMT have been drawn up to ensure that there is a clear understanding of responsibilities, rights and powers of the trustees and members.
This governing document is supported by a set of Regulations which give greater detail about membership and associate membership, organisational structures and procedures.
Meetings of the Trustees and Executive Officers
The Board meets monthly at the BAMT premises in Islington, London.
