We are an independent organisation and work with a group of about 30 members (12-15 people with dementia, each with their carer); we have a group of  volunteers to help with our sessions. Our musical activities are led by musicians who have gained valuable experience through the Alzheimer’s Society’s ‘Singing for the Brain®’project. Our musical leaders take it in turns to lead the sessions. Other volunteers are on hand to assist with the singing, organise the refreshments and help to look after members of the group.

We have excellent support from volunteers from the University of Exeter, as well as Sixth Form volunteers from Maynard School; we also enjoy enjoy occasional visits from the choir of Redhills Primary school and St Peter's School, Lympstone.
