- Does your organisation already support people with dementia, their family or their carers?
- Would you like to bring the power of personal music to people in your community?
- Would you like to connect with like-minded organisations, to share ideas and discover new ways to improve your existing services?
If you answered ‘yes’ to these questions, and the support you provide is free of charge, you should become a Playlist for Life Help Point. (Community organisations that charge for services are asked to contact us for further info).
Hundreds of community organisations around the UK are supporting people to use the power of personal music to help those living dementia by setting up a Playlist for Life Help Point. All the training and materials you need to get started are provided absolutely FREE!
What is a Help Point?
A Help Point is somewhere that people affected by dementia can access free information, resources and in some cases support about creating and using a personalised playlist. Any organisation that can share our resources, provide free advice, support or activity to people affected by dementia are invited to apply, from grassroots community groups to libraries, dementia cafes, sports clubs, community Police stations and GP Surgeries.
Help Points can be a physical location where people can pick up leaflets and materials about making a personalised playlist, but many organisations have found new ways of connecting with their service users over the phone or digitally with technology such as Zoom. No matter how you reach your community, there are multiple ways for you to set up your Help Point and share the power of personal music.
Sign up to receive your free Help Point pack and our monthly emails full of free resources, top tips and guidance to make your Help Point a success. You will also have access to our free Help Point eLearning. This course will give you the resources, tools and confidence to share the power of personal music with your community.
