We have now distributed a total of £610,599 to grantees of the Paul & Nick Harvey Fund. A first round of grants, made in May 2021, went to 27 organisations who each received a share of £500,000, donated by The Hunter Foundation. In August 2021, we partnered with the National Academy for Social Prescribing (NASP) who provided £100,000 which, together with donations from the public, enabled us to fund a further four organisations offering musical services for people living with dementia and their carers.
Our heartfelt thanks go to everyone who applied (we are sorry we couldn’t support you all) and to our supporters who spread the word about this fund. Our huge appreciation, too, to the wonderful Paul & Nick Harvey for Four Notes – Paul’s Tune, where the story began. We’ll be following progress of each of the projects and bring you updates in the coming months. Click on each organisation to find out more about them and how they plan to spend their grant.
