The funding will be used to support many elements of our project work. It will contribute to the salary costs of our two part-time employees. It will also pay for Tea, coffee and sundries required for running the cafés, stationery and office equipment and audio equipment for use in the cafés. Hiring local singers, musicians as entertainment. Music is a vital tool for people living with dementia and has a proven influence of response from those participating. To see someone who can hardly communicate with others come alive and join in singing the songs they loved from their past is great to see and such a joy and encouragement for their carers.
