About Us

The 180 Project is a community recovery programme in Lancashire and is one of the first of its kind in the UK. It is unique, effective and unlike anything else for those recovering from addiction problems. We use sport [an adapted CrossFit programme] combined with education, mentoring and peer support to achieve total wellness so participants are physically, emotionally and mentally well and socially connected.

180 gives focus and hope to offenders in the system and those recovering from addiction. It also has the potential to reach those people who are at risk of falling into this cycle as early as possible. Through this we aim to break the cycle of substance abuse, crime and prison to help rebuild lives. The long term goal is to impact positively on criminal re-offense rates, improve local communities and to assist individuals in gaining education, volunteer and employment opportunities.

About Us

Power of Music through music therapy, singing and sharing music deliver planned sessions that incorporate peer support and social interaction. Our music sessions are designed to help people and their families living with a long term condition such as dementia. Meeting people and sharing music on a regular basis encourages peer support creating important networking where people come together to share their experiences. The Power of Music CIC already has two Community Choirs called the “Songbirds” in West Lancashire. The project is to develop “Singing For Health” sessions delivered by some of our choir members and our choir facilitator within residential and day care settings for people living with a long term health condition such as dementia, COPD, stroke and mental health. The Power of Music has already worked with the British Lung Foundation, Stroke Association and the Alzheimer’s society.

Our aim is to help and support people who can be isolated and dis-empowered as a result of the advanced stage of their dementia or other long term health conditions. These musical and personal interactions identify and build upon areas still intact in a person suffering the losses associated with the later stages of Alzheimer’s or, other forms of dementia or stroke such as memory, physical capacities, personality changes and accompanying loss of identity. Power of Music can deliver a “Singing for Health” programme designed to support care staff to develop their understanding of how music can benefit and support the emotional needs of people with dementia in the context of a person-centred approach to dementia care.
