Youth Music - funding for music-making projects

Youth Music - funding for music-making projects

Youth Music is a national charity investing in music-making projects for children and young people (aged 0-25) experiencing challenging circumstances.

Their vision is that one day, all children and young people can make music. In order to achieve this, they’re working collaboratively to transform music education in England. Their funding is focused on supporting projects for children and young people who face barriers to music-making as a result of who they are, where they live, or the circumstances they’re facing.

Youth Music’s grants programme is made up of separate funds:

Fund A awards smaller grants for high-quality projects that will help to achieve a musically inclusive England.

Fund B awards medium-sized grants for high-quality, sustained projects that expand and embed musically inclusive practice within and beyond your organisation.

Fund C awards larger grants for projects with a dual role of delivery and strategic work; expanding and embedding high quality, inclusive music-making.

Fund A Grants of £2,000 to £30,000 are available and the fund is designed to support music-making and music-making related activities for children and young people (aged 0-25) facing barriers.

Fund A is a one-stage process.
