Music is a powerful tool for expression, communication and social connection
Camerata in the Community use music to improve lives across cultural education and health & social care.
Be it providing vital therapy for people living with dementia as part of our Music In Mind programme or empowering young people though our work at schools, health and wellbeing of our communities is at the heart of what we do. We work with a highly skilled group of practitioners to drive this work and also have a long standing research partnership with The University of Manchester. Find out more below.
Music and dementia
There are currently around 850,000 people with dementia in the UK. This is projected to rise to 1.6 million by 2040. Our award-winning specialist music therapy programme is already making impact to thousands of individuals living with dementia across the North-West, and we have plans to upscale this globally.Find out more about our work with dementia >
