Frances is a Music Health Interventionist who has established a social enterprise called Think Cre8tive!
She says: “Along with never-ending funding applications, program and conference delivery as well as recruiting and training volunteers, we’ve been developing an APP: Sing it Out Think Cre8tive! This has finally been released via App Store and Google Play.”
Frances explains: “We’re using a mobile app for both Google and Android to make singing easier/more accessible for the different groups that we currently work with: preventing/reducing post natal depression with new mums and babies, and reducing loneliness and isolation in older people/care homes. We’ve had interest from additional groups including prisons and mental health wards, but as we all know, it all comes down to funding. At the moment our projects are based in Bolton and Wakefield, but we’re looking to expand our model further afield through volunteer recruitment and training.
We wish Frances every success with her new venture.
