Dementia Inclusive Singing Network

Due to the current outbreak of the COVID-19 virus and the impact this is having on individuals and groups, Luminate has taken the decision to close and review the deadline for the small grants programme (Original deadline: midnight on Sunday 29th March 2020).

We will continue to monitor NHS and Scottish Government guidelines and review processes on an ongoing basis. The original small grants programme information has been left on this page as an indicator of the types of activities we will fund when the grants programme reopens, however we may review the criteria.  

Small Grants Programme

The dementia inclusive singing network helps people affected by dementia to take part in singing activities across Scotland, and supports leaders and organisers of singing groups and choirs to be inclusive of people living with dementia.  One way that we do this is by awarding small grants to individuals and groups.

Our Grants Programme is funded by the Life Changes Trust and the Baring Foundation.

Who can apply for a Dementia Inclusive Singing Network Grant?

You can apply for a grant if you:

  1. Lead or organise regular singing opportunities for people anywhere in Scotland, with a focus on dementia inclusive practice.
  2. Lead or organise regular singing opportunities for people anywhere in Scotland, and would like your activities to become dementia inclusive.
  3. Are looking to set up a dementia inclusive choir or singing group anywhere in Scotland.

You can apply for a grant as an individual choir / song leader or organiser, or on behalf of your group.

How much money is available?

We will award grants of £250 to £1,000.  We have a total fund of £10,000 available.

What will we fund?

We will fund new or existing activities to help individuals, groups or organisations to start or improve dementia inclusive singing activities in their community.  We expect to support a range of activities and purchases.  These might include:

We are not able to fund ongoing choir or singing group costs.

You are expected to have or put in place all necessary insurances to cover your activities or equipment. You will not be covered by Luminate’s insurance policies. We encourage you to take advice from your insurers about what level of cover is advisable, especially if your funded activity involves working with other people.

How will the Dementia Inclusive Singing Network decide on grant awards?

To be considered for a grant you must:

A panel will carefully consider each application against these five criteria, and will take into account how achievable the activity is within the budget you send us.  The panel will include choir leaders, and people living with dementia and their carers.

If you are considering applying, you should read the Principles of the Dementia Inclusive Singing Network. This lists essential features of groups who welcome and include people living with dementia. Don’t worry if you don’t meet all the principles at the moment, but you should use the principles to help you when you are preparing your application.
