Help Us Support People Like Betty
Betty is an ex-midwife currently residing at the Lakeview Lodge care home, having recently been connected to a local primary school for an IMM project. This is what she shared about the sessions:
“I feel lucky to be a resident at Lakeview during this time. The lady who leads the session is so energetic and vibrant. The songs and beats became familiar once you heard the music. You just forget where you are and get involved with it.”
This intergenerational project was funded by Comic Relief, who believe in the impact of intergenerational sessions for people like Betty. To help us carry on this work, we kindly ask for your support in the form of a donation.
Even £5 can help us put resources together, connect more care homes with schools, deliver music therapy sessions or even deliver training to care home staff, teachers or activity coordinators, providing them with the confidence and skills to deliver their own sessions.
Music Is Innate In All Of Us
We are thrilled to share our latest video, celebrating our work, our dedicated team, our incredible service users and showcasing intergenerational music practice at the forefront of our health and wellbeing.
IMM (Intergenerational Music Making) is a national not-for-profit organisation which delivers programmes, training, and research to improve the mental and physical wellbeing of the old and the young in communities across the UK, through the power of music.
We work closely with care homes, schools, hospitals, musicians and creatives, sharing our unique expertise to deliver and embed a culture of intergenerational practice.

“Seeing the students leaving and skipping out the door. The older adults their responses genuine, not just anecdotal, improvements but reports from staff and other direct observations, has been just a joy to behold.”
