FUNDING: Youth Music – Grants for music-making projects for children and young people

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

If you work for an organisation and you have an idea for a music-making project, you’ll find all the information you need about applying for a Youth Music grant below.

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 is supported by the National Lottery, awarding funds via Arts Council England. Right now, we can only support around a third of projects applying to us for funding – we fundraise so that we can help even more children and young people nationwide.
