Youth Music – Small Grants

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. 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. They support around 350 projects across England each year, with grants ranging from £2,000 – £30,000.

Projects should be centred on either or both of the following:

Music-making for children and young people in challenging circumstances.
Strategic work supporting the development of the workforce, organisations, and/or the wider sector.

Youth Music takes an outcomes approach. Projects support the musical, personal and social development of children and young people, and also support positive outcomes for organisations and their workforce. Every Youth Music project measures its impact, helping them build a unique national overview.

Deadline: 5pm 5 April 2019

The Joicey Trust

Grants are made across a wide spectrum for either revenue (including ‘core funding’) or capital expenditure. Applications for research (and research costs within core funding applications) will not normally be supported. The Trustees also generally exclude applications from charities that are not registered within the beneficiary area and where gross incoming resources exceed £1 million as any award would be a very small addition to these resources.

Trustees’ meetings take place twice a year: usually late January/early February and late June/ July.

Next Deadline: 31 May 2019 (early applications are recommended)

Kelly Family Charitable Trust

Kelly Family Charitable Trust

Registered charities whose activities support and encourage the family to work as a cohesive unit in tackling problems that face one or more of its members can apply for grants of up to £5,000  – though trustees will consider requests for higher amounts.

The three areas of activity that the charity wishes to support are as follows:

  1. Interventions that support families and help them in ways that prevent the fracture of the family unit.
  2. Families where sexual abuse, physical abuse, domestic violence, alcohol abuse and drug abuse threaten the integrity of the family unit.
  3. Prisoners and – in particular – their families, during and after the period of imprisonment.

The Trust will consider both capital and revenue grants. The Trust is happy to support requests for core funding as well as project-based grants, and actively encourages applications from relatively new organisations to help them become established.

The Trust prefers to support charities whose income is below £500,000. However, larger charities with pioneering pilot projects will be considered.
