The Power of Music Fund

Music for All launches its round of funding as part of The Power of Music Fund!

Music for All launches its round of funding as part of The Power of Music Fund. It offers small grants to local organisations that use music making to support people living with dementia and their carers. Please note that applications from underrepresented communities such as those from the Global Majority will be prioritised.

The National Academy for Social Prescribing (NASP) launched The Power of Music Fund last year to promote music as a social prescription for people living with dementia and their carers. It is supported by The Utley Foundation, Arts Council England, alongside other investors and private donors. So far, the fund has awarded small grants to 70 grassroots music and dementia projects across the UK, as well as the UK’s first Centre of Excellence for Music and Dementia hosted by Manchester Camerata. Together, these grants will support more that 5,500 people.

The music making activity includes people living with dementia and their carers and the application describes how the grant will provide a musical moment(s) of joy for a person or people living with dementia (e.g. costs associated with rehearsals/performance(s) including transport for participants.

Grantees will be supported beyond their funding by connecting grassroots groups to the health system, improving access to activities and strengthening community connection. They will have access to support including training, peer support, resources, development opportunities, and evaluation through NASP’s national music and dementia network.
