Thank you for your interest in taking part in a media project for Playlist for Life. Whether you are taking part in a film, an audio recording, a photography session, or sharing your story with us to use as a case study, we want the experience to be positive for you. It is very important that you are comfortable with what we are doing and how we plan to use your contribution. This form explains how we will use your contribution and asks you to give us permission to record your contribution you and share that publicly.

With your permission, we will keep in touch with you after the recording has been made to keep you updated about its use and ensure you continue to be happy with our use of it.


What is Playlist for Life?
Playlist for Life is a UK charity that helps people with dementia find and use music that can make them feel better. We train health and care professionals in using music, provide a network of Community Help Points where people can find a helping hand to get them started using music, and we raise awareness of the power of music.


Why do we want to share your story?
We recognise that the best people to help others understand the experience of living with dementia, caring for someone with dementia, or using music are people who have experienced that. So when we train people or raise awareness of the power of playlists we like to use real people's stories, ideally told by those people themselves. We record films, audio programmes, photo-stories and other types of media to share those real-life stories in the most immediate way. Your contribution will be part of that. 


How will we use your contribution?
We will record an interview with you and/or take your photograph and will edit your contribution into a short film, audio recording or photo-story. We will make that available publicly on our website, on our social media channels, or will share it with journalists. If your circumstances change at a later date and you decide you no longer wish us to use your contribution to our film, please tell us and we will stop using it.
