Youth Music, England’s largest children’s music charity, which provides funding for music-making projects, has announced new application deadlines for its grant making programmes. Grants are available to fund developmental music-making projects for children and young people in challenging circumstances as well as projects that support the development of the workforce, organisations and the wider sector.
Youth Making’s funding programme is made up of three separate funds. These are:
Fund A which offers small grants (£2,000 to £30,000) for high quality music-making projects.
Fund B offers medium-sized grants (30,001 – £100,000 per year for up to two years) for larger programmes of work.
Fund C offers grants (£50,000 to £180,000) for strategic programmes to help embed sustainable, inclusive music-making across a local area.
The types of organisations that are eligible to apply include charities, not for profit organisations and schools. Schools will however have to justify how activities are to be funded and do not duplicate Department of Education funding.
The closing dates for applications to Fund A is 5 pm on the 18 August 2017, Fund B the 10 November 2017 and Fund C the 23 June 2017.
