The Utley Foundation are thrilled to announce the launch of the Power of Music Fund, a ground-breaking initiative managed by the National Academy for Social Prescribing. Kickstarted by generous £1 million donation from The Utley Foundation, alongside support from Music for All, Arts Council England, and other donors, including members of the public, this fund is set to revolutionise the way we approach dementia care.
Applications for the fund opened on November 22, offering an incredible opportunity for locally based music and dementia groups, including choirs, to receive small grants of £1,000 or £2,000 per year for three years.
Deadline: 22 December 2023.
Additionally, a Centre of Excellence will award an impressive £500,000 over three years to a consortium bid that must include the NHS. This Centre of Excellence aims to support music and dementia activity in a specific area while gathering valuable evidence of savings to the NHS.
