Carers’ Music Fund Summit: Wednesday 23 June 2021, 1.00pm – 5.30pm

We’ve been working with Spirit of 2012 to evaluate the impact of music programmes for unpaid female carers who represent the majority of unpaid carers and experience higher levels of loneliness and isolation. Over the last two years, the Carers’ Music Fund, funded by the DCMS Tampon Tax has supported ten projects targeting female carers across the UK. On 23 June, Spirit of 2012 is hosting a free virtual summit to share practical guidance on how to design and implement music programmes which improve wellbeing and reduce loneliness for unpaid female carers. The event will also show how reach unpaid carers, engage them, and keep them engaged.

In April, What Works Centre for Wellbeing produced a podcast showcasing the projects and the work of the programme.

Keynote speakers will include Baroness Diana Barran and Lord Gus O’Donnell. What Works Centre for Wellbeing will be presenting, as well as research partner Apteligen, and Carers UK alongside the project managers, participants and other experts in the field.

The summit will be online on Wednesday 23 June at 1.00 – 5.30pm. Admission is free but registration is essential.
