Mindsong is a Gloucestershire-based organisation that enables people living with late-stage dementia and their carers to communicate through music to improve health and wellbeing. Mindsong provides two main services: Music Therapy, a clinical intervention delivered by professional therapists to care homes and day centres, and Meaningful Music singing groups, delivered by trained volunteers in care homes. Funding from The Fore will enable vital proof of concept work that will give Mindsong a strong chance of winning NHS cultural commissioning contracts and the ability to extend across Gloucestershire and then franchise across the UK.
