By 2030, rates of dementia in Uttlesford are forecast to increase by 80% to almost 2,000 people. This is a big challenge for our community.
Whilst Saffron Hall can’t cure dementia, we can improve the lives of people with it. From next season, working with music therapists from Anglia Ruskin University, we’re going to be offering free music courses for those with dementia and their carers.
You may not know that Saffron Hall Trust is a registered charity. In order to sustain our projects for those with dementia and their carers, we really need your support.
Imagine being 7 years old and your Monday morning school assembly is led by international concert violinist Nicola Benedetti. Imagine being 9 years old, and you’re singing in the world premiere of a new opera. Imagine being 14 years old and you’re performing alongside the National Youth Jazz Orchestra.
For children and young people in our local schools, all of this isn’t something to just imagine. It’s real life. Saffron Hall offers world-class creative opportunities that broaden the horizons and develop the skills of the next generation.
