How we work

Resonate is our pioneering arts programme for older people living with dementia and other mental health issues.


Devised by Westminster Arts in 2009 and funded by Central London, West London, and Hammersmith & Fulham Clinical Commissioning Groups and the City Bridge Trust, plus a range of trusts  eg the London Community Foundation, we provide a range of arts projects and hands-on creative opportunities for people at all stages of care from diagnosis onwards.


Our programme of activities range from group sessions for those in residential care to one-to-one interventions for people living in their own homes and at risk of isolation. Activities include supported visits to galleries and theatres that enhance and compliment individual care plans, and help people to feel part of their wider community.

Referrals to our service

People​​ are referred to the programme through a range of services including the Dementia Advisors, Memory Services, Admiral nurses, Community Mental Health Teams, outreach workers and voluntary organisations such as Open Age or Octavia Housing.

Our programme was developed to support​ the delivery of the National Dementia Strategy in London with a focus on the City of Westminster, and more recently Kensington and Chelsea and Hammersmith and Fulham.
