Lost Chord UK is an innovative charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and well-being of those living with dementia and other complex health needs. By interactive, therapeutic music sessions in both the community and care home setting, we increase the general awareness, self-esteem and overall well-being of everyone who takes part and is present at the sessions.
From its earliest beginnings with 11 residential homes in Rotherham, LCUK has expanded into many parts of South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, Warwickshire, North Lincolnshire, Suffolk and the Home Counties. We operate in Wales and in alignment we our strategic plan we have recently been given permission to operate in Scotland and await confirmation from Northern Ireland. Read more >

Lesley Garrett CBE, the world famous soprano, became our first National Patron. Lesley originally came from Doncaster and obviously feels a certain allegiance to this area. We asked her to comment on her reasons for supporting Lost Chord.
“I had a dear aunt with dementia, a resident at a home in South Yorkshire. She didn’t recognise any of us by sight towards the end, but when my mother played one of my CD’s her face always lit up and she would say ‘Lesley.’ I do admire the work you do, especially as you are helping young musicians as well as people with dementia.”
During the year of our 10th anniversary, we were delighted Sir Cliff Richard OBE agreed to be one of our National Patrons. His mother suffered with dementia and he knows what an important part music can play in improving the quality of life for people with dementia.
