Grants are available to UK based community groups and schools who would benefit from a “helping hand” to fulfil their potential in bringing music to their community.
The funding can be put towards musical instrument costs, workshops/training, using music to break down barriers, providing a variety of educational opportunities as well as helping to find ways to integrate many diverse and minority groups positively into society.
Grants of up to £2,500 are available.

* Please note, this year’s Autumn funding deadline has been extended until 1 November for funding in January 2021 due to the Coronavirus crisis.
