UK Music and Music for Dementia have joined forces on a ground-breaking project to show how music can play a more vital role in improving health and wellbeing. As part of the project, the collective voice for the music industry and the campaign have launched a nationwide ‘Power of Music’ survey.The survey, which is open to everyone – organisations and individuals – will contribute findings to further discussions with government about the right policy interventions needed to enhance music’s role in health and wellbeing.

Questions include the role for music in improving care for those living with psychological and physical conditions, barriers that might prevent greater partnership, and what more could be done to support the use of music in health and wellbeing in care. UK Music and Music for Dementia are keen to get as many responses as possible from both individuals and organisations before the survey closes on 30 June.
