Centre of Excellence

We are funding one centre of excellence to connect music provision and projects and make a real difference to people living with dementia. 

In addition to the Power of Music Fund Small Grants, there is also an investment of £500,000 available to one Centre of Excellence over the 3 year course of the fund. 

This Centre of Excellence will be a place where partners come together to pool their expertise, knowledge, resources and ambition to scale and spread music for dementia initiatives.  

The Centre of Excellence is funded by Arts Council England and the Utley Foundation.
