Playlist for Life Help Points are hosted by existing organisations, such as churches, faith groups, libraries and carers’ centres, based anywhere in the UK. Host organisations are given free training and resources to promote the power of music to help dementia and often provide a helping hand to anyone who gets stuck with technology or finding the right tunes.
Any organisation that would like to be part of the UK-wide project can apply to become a Playlist for Life community Help Point on the Playlist for Life website. Host organisations need to:
- Already work with people with dementia and their families
- Have physical premises with good public footfall
- Have existing volunteer structures in place.
