This fall, the Creative Artists Agency (CAA) London Task Force will host its third Young London Party (YLP), an annual event that brings together hundreds of sports and entertainment industry professionals from across the capital to help raise money to support Sported and Nordoff Robbins.
CAA TASK FORCE
Founded in 2002, the Task Force grew out of the desire of the agency’s staff to make a difference. Each year, the Task Force gives time and money to support multiple causes, and organizes benefits in Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, and London that not only raise hundreds of thousands of pounds, but also aims to introduce staff across the entertainment industry to the world of philanthropy.
Sported is a fast growing charity that connects and supports 3,000 community sports clubs and the inspirational local heroes and heroines that run them across the country, helping transform the lives of disadvantaged young people. They help the community sport clubs and groups become bigger, more sustainable, and more effective. They use the power of sport to tackle the root causes of some of society’s biggest problems - crime, anti-social behavior, and obesity, to name a few. More than that, they are giving disadvantaged young people the opportunities, confidence, and support to overcome their personal hurdles and succeed in life.
Nordoff Robbins is a national music therapy charity dedicated to transforming the lives of vulnerable children and adults across the UK. They use music therapy and other music services to help people with a range of challenges such as autism, dementia, mental health problems, stroke, brain injury, depression, and life-threatening or terminal illnesses. All of the people they help have one uniting factor - music dramatically improves their quality of life. The charity also provides professional Masters training for music therapists, along with various short courses and workshops which are open to everyone interested in learning more about music and well-being. Their research work is building the evidence for music therapy and helps inform and train the practitioners of the future.
