Paul and Nick Harvey Fund – Application Guidelines - Music for Dementia
In November 2020 we heard the news that The Hunter Foundation were giving Paul & Nick Harvey £1m to ‘help put a light into trying to release people from dementia’. Father and son immediately agreed that £500,000 of this would go to Music for Dementia.
(Read more about the story behind this generous donation).
We chose to redirect this funding back to the sector, by supporting organisations working musically with people living with dementia around the UK.
Below are details of how your non-profit organisation could apply for a grant from this fund. Please read the application criteria carefully, to check you are eligible to apply.
