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.
