Sacred Sound Festival will be fundraising, supporting and raising awareness for the following charities below:
Amazon Watch is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organisation founded in 1996 to protect the rainforest and advance the rights of Indigenous peoples in the Amazon Basin. We partner with Indigenous and environmental organizations in campaigns for human rights, corporate accountability, and the preservation of the Amazon's ecological systems.
A person is reported missing every 90 seconds in the UK. Missing People is the only charity in the UK which is dedicated to bringing the 186,000 children and adults that go missing every year back together with their families. Some missing people you will have heard of, but many more you won’t. For their families, life without them can be a desperate and unbearable struggle. We are there for them 24 hours a day, every day of the year, at the end of a phone, text or email, ready to use every means possible to search for and find their missing loved ones and to provide vital on-going support to families where the agonising wait turns into years, not just days.
You can call or text our helpline on 116 000 for advice, support and options if you, or someone you love, goes missing or runs away - it’s free, 24 hour and confidential.
Our website has a huge amount of information to help you, whether you are away from home yourself or you have a missing loved one and need help and support and there are many different ways you can access that help www.missingpeople.org.uk
Missing People, which has helped more than 800 adults, children and families per month since lockdown began, has encouraged families to download a free guide to looking after one another’s mental health. You can download the guides here www.missingpeople.org.uk/winterguides

A BAND OF BROTHERS
A band of brothers (ABOB) works with young men involved in the criminal justice system. We provide them with the support they need to make the transition to an adulthood free of crime, and filled with a sense of belonging, connection and purpose.
The young men we meet have often experienced or witnessed domestic violence. They may have been abused or else kept someone else’s abuse a secret. They may have lived in care or experienced neglect. They may have grown up where drug and alcohol abuse is commonplace and where positive adult role models are in short supply.
Our work transforms the lives of young men and their communities, whilst saving the state (and ultimately the taxpayer) £40,000 a year for each avoided incarceration. Instead, we create well-rounded men who contribute back to society with healthy aspirations and a renewed sense of wellbeing.
Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is a charity leading a movement against suicide through vital, life-saving support, impactful, provocative campaigns and collective action.
The CALM helpline spoke to over 122,000 people in 2019, directly preventing 588 suicides. And as of the lockdown has seen an increase of 37% in daily calls from people struggling with worries around health, family, work and mental health concerns.
CALM believes in helping people find ways to battle against living miserably every day.
CONNECTED BY HUMANITY
Connected by Humanity provide spaces for people to share and connect with others. We believe everyone should have a friendly community space to be a part of, where they feel valued and can be themselves. We welcome people of all ages, backgrounds and you can join our events alone or with a friend. We are starting online events in 2021 where you will be able to have authentic conversations in small groups for 3-4 people with suggested questions offered to help facilitate the conversation. We hope to see you there!
TreeSisters is an invitation to everyone to do as much radical good as they can for the planet. Our global network of Treesisters is transforming both lives and landscapes in extraordinary ways. TreeSisters offers unique global programs that focus on encouraging women's leadership, Nature-connection, and significant behaviour change as we make the shift from being consumers to restorers. TreeSisters is funding the restoration of environments, biodiversity and communities within more than 10 major ecosystems around the global Tropics, through a diverse portfolio of vetted, trusted reforestation projects and in the process, planting millions of trees. Join us in making ecological restoration the new norm!
Friends, Families and Travellers
“Friends, Families and Travellers (FFT) are a leading national charity working on behalf of all Gypsies, Travellers and Roma regardless of ethnicity, culture or background. We seek to end racism and discrimination against Gypsies, Travellers and Roma and to protect the right to pursue a nomadic way of life. We provide advice and consultancy, promote health and wellbeing, contribute to research and policy making, deliver training and much more.”
Independent Age is an older people's charity that wants to make the UK a place where we can all live happy, connected, and purposeful later lives. During the coronavirus crisis, we have prioritised our efforts to ensure we continue to provide support to the 3000+ older people with whom we currently work. We are developing a programme of support for local organisations who are providing critical services for older people.
We understand the issues faced in later life, campaign for change, and provide support people can rely on – from clear and straightforward information guides to a network of volunteers helping to reduce loneliness and isolation across the UK.
