About the fund

Since March 2019, we have been part of the learning partnership for the Spirit of 2012 Carers’ Music Fund, alongside programme evaluators Apteligen, Carers UK, and the Behavioural Insights Team. We worked together to ensure that a wellbeing lens was used to plan the design, delivery and evaluation of the Fund, as well as to support the projects in their learning.

The Carers’ Music Fund has been made possible by funding that Spirit of 2012 received from the Tampon Tax Fund, awarded through the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

The programme supported participatory music-making interventions aimed at improving the wellbeing and loneliness of female carers who are particularly vulnerable to low wellbeing and social isolation. As the 2-year fund comes to an end, we look at some of the key insights from our partnership working and findings from the programme-level evaluation.
