Playlist for Life - Community Councils webinar

The Improvement Service and Playlist for Life are hosting a free webinar for community councillors on Tuesday 13th June from 6pm to 7pm.

Playlist for Life is a music and dementia charity. The charity was founded in 2013 by writer and broadcaster Sally Magnusson with a simple vision: for everyone with dementia to have a unique, personalised playlist and for everyone who loves or cares for them to know how to use it.

Over two decades of scientific research has shown that listening to a personalised playlist can improve the lives of those living with dementia. In fact, listening to music that is personally meaningful has many psychological benefits, meaning anyone can benefit from a playlist.

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. 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 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.
