Schools and not-for-profit organisations can apply for grants 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 music-making sector.

The funding is being made available through Youth Music, England's largest children's music charity, which provides funding for music-making projects. Youth Making's funding programme is made up of three separate funds. These are:

  • Fund A - small grants (£2,000 to £30,000) for high quality music-making projects
  • Fund B - medium-sized grants (£30,001 - £150,000 per year for up to two years) for larger work programmes.
  • Fund C - large grants (£50,000 to £180,000) for strategic programmes to help embed sustainable, inclusive music-making across a local area.

In their applications, schools must justify how the proposed activities would not duplicate Department of Education funding. Applications for Fund A are open until 5pm on 5 April 2019 and applications for Fund B are open until 17 May 2019.
