93p of every pound received by Playlist for Life goes into our core work, including:

  • Spreading the word about the power of music to help dementia
  • Providing tools and training to help people use it; free when we can and as cheap as possible when we can't
  • Inventing user-friendly ways to use new technologies, like our app, to reach people isolated at home and their families

In the first three quarters of 2016/17, we:

  • spoke directly to almost 11,000 people about the power of personal music. We know from research that more than one in ten go on to create a playlist for themselves or someone else
  • distributed more than 7,000 Get Started wallcharts and 800 iPods
  • trained teams in almost 50 establishments (approaching 1600 individual staff members) in our new advanced package focused on integrating playlist into care
  • established 4 pilot Community Hubs, with 12 more already in the pipeline
  • started development of the public app, due to be launched in summer 2017
  • established a base in Glasgow with 5 staff and a network of 16 trainers across the UK

All this is made possible because of the generosity of people like you. Thank you!
