Friends Against Scams

Scams affect the lives of millions of people across the UK. People who are scammed often experience shame and social isolation as a result. 

Friends Against Scams is a National Trading Standards (NTS) Scams Team initiative, which aims to protect and prevent people from becoming victims of scams by empowering communities to "Take a Stand Against Scams".

Music for Dementia 2020

How can music help you?

It is anticipated that there will be one million people living with dementia in the UK by 2021.
Research has shown that music and music therapy has the ability to help reduce the often-distressing symptoms of dementia, such as agitation, apathy and anxiety.
Sadly not everyone living with dementia has access to music and this has to change.
Our aim is to make music available to everyone living with dementia by 2020.
