Charity information


We work in care homes, day centres and private homes in Gloucestershire, with people who have advanced dementia. We provide music therapy (group work and 1-to-1 therapy at end-of-life, plus work with individuals exhibiting challenging behaviour due to unmet needs) and free volunteer-led ‘Meaningful Music’. Both strands are aimed at enriching the lives of people who are often isolated and very frail and for whom meaningful verbal communication is no longer possible.
