Music and Dementia

The Utley Foundation is particularly focused on how music can help unlock memories and communication for people living with dementia. The Foundation has been exploring a wide range of interventions, from live music to personalised playlists, cementing their place as a pioneering philanthropic financier in this emergent space.



The Foundation is committed to working with existing veteran charities alongside exciting new initiatives to increase the support to and employability of ex service people. The Foundation is particularly interested in supporting the mental health, wellbeing and employable skills development of veterans as they leave the forces.



The Foundation has dedicated a considerable amount of their resource to supporting children’s charities since it’s inception and it continues to be a focus area of the trustees. Support for charities benefiting under-privilege, disabled and ill children at home and abroad remains a key priority for the foundation as it moves forward.
