NASP The Power of Music Fund – to support those living with Dementia

National Academy for Social Prescribing (NASP) grant funding is available to connect music provision and projects to make a real difference to people living with dementia. Music can be a lifeline for people living with dementia and their careers. While dementia is a progressive condition without a cure, music can improve mood, offer opportunities for self-expression and creativity, strengthen personal relationships, and reconnect people to those they love. Research suggests that engagement with music can offer significant social, emotional, and cognitive benefits for people living with dementia. Applications will be accepted from the 22 November to 22 December ‘23. Small grants will be available to dementia choirs and music groups in the UK to cover basic costs – like room hire, instruments, refreshments, and travel – full details can be found here.
