Together With Music
Together With Music – connecting care homes, schools and youth groups.
Together with Music is a virtual, intergenerational music programme; a partnership between IMM and Care England, that builds connections between care homes, residents, older people and their local schools and youth groups.
Since the launch of Together with Music in 2020, the platform has been host to over 1,450 organisations across the health, social care, education and arts sector establishing so many new, intergenerational connections and demonstrating that during a challenging time of distance and isolation, music prevails and has inspired incredible connection.
How do I get involved?
The process is really simple! Organisations and groups can sign up to the FREE Membership site. Once you are a member, your own personal 'Together with Music Connector' will be in touch and will be there to support you - starting with finding and connecting you with a local group! Every connection begins with sharing your song! #itstartswithasong
“I can see the difference Together with Music is making and the multitude of benefits that come from connections between generations and communities. Together with Music is creative and responsive and is going to be transformational for overall wellbeing and quality of life.”
Professor Martin Green OBE, CEO of Care England
