Mull Musical Minds

After an approach from the family of a resident with Alzheimers, Mull and Iona Community Trust secured funding to establish a support group called Mull Musical Minds.

Mull Musical Minds is for people who are living with Dementia, Parkinson’s Disease, recovering from a stroke, providing them with an opportunity to meet with other people in similar situations and to enjoy regular social interaction by taking part in a singing group. We welcome carers as well as anyone who simply wants to join in for a good old fashioned sing song.

This project is important as it helps address issues of rural isolation, social exclusion and the lack of local, formal support services.

With the funding MICT has secured, we are able to support travel cost for attendees and volunteers as well as venue hire costs. Mull Musical Minds takes place every 2 weeks, normally at An Roth in Craignure but we do move around the island for a change of scenery!
