For people with dementia, music therapy provides a vital opportunity to express emotions and interact with other people, in a safe and supportive environment. MHA is committed to providing music therapy free of charge to all residents with dementia who will benefit from it, but we need your help!
A donation from you could help in the following ways:
- £30 could pay for an individual music therapy session, giving someone with dementia the opportunity to express their feelings.
- £45 could pay for a group music therapy session, allowing people to interact and enjoy a shared experience.
- £170 could pay for a set of handheld instruments, including tambours, tambourines and maracas, providing the opportunity for people with dementia to experiment with different sounds and maintain their co-ordination skills.
- £360 could pay for a 12 week course of music therapy sessions for one person, easing anxiety and improving their overall feeling of well-being.

Fundraise for Music Therapy
Getting together with other people is a great way to raise funds and have fun at the same time. If your church or community group would like to organise a coffee morning or other fundraising event,
contact us to see how we can help. We were delighted that this summer, Rev Nick Young cycled the length of the British Isles from Land’s End to John O’Groats to raise funds for music therapy. If you’d like to sponsor Nick you can visit his JustGiving page – or why not organise a sponsored challenge of your own? (you don’t have to go as far as Nick!)
