Grantholder logos and branding

Congratulations on your successful application to our grants programme. The work that you do is exceptionally important, and we look forward to supporting you to transform the lives of children and young people through music-making throughout England.

This section will provide you with links to download our logo as well as providing guidance on how to acknowledge our support.

 

Logos

By acknowledging our support publicly you will help make a stronger case for continued investment in life-changing music-making for all children and young people. Where possible, we ask that you feature our grant award logo on all of your related information, marketing and publicity materials.

As well as fundraising for charitable donations from the general public, trusts and companies, Youth Music works with Arts Council England to distribute National Lottery funding to provide support for projects like yours. We therefore encourage you to use the ‘lock-up’ version of our logo, which acknowledges Youth Music, Arts Council and National Lottery.

Lock-up logos

If your materials have a white background please use this logo:
Black text logo (web)
Black text logo (print)

If your materials have a black background please use this logo:
White text logo (web)
White text logo (print)

If your materials have a coloured background please use this logo:
Black text transparent logo (web)
Black text transparent logo (print)
White text transparent logo (web)

Other logo formats

If it isn’t appropriate to use the lock-up version of our logo then please use the standard Youth Music logo: download here. If you need to use this option you must also acknowledge Arts Council and National Lottery. The correct version of the Arts Council / Lottery logo can be found here.

If you have any questions, difficulties, or you need a logo in an alternative format, please email comms@youthmusic.org.uk.
 

Verbal acknowledgement

If you are not able to acknowledge us visually, via a logo, then the following written or verbal acknowledgement can be used instead.

“Supported by Youth Music and using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.”

 

Linking to Youth Music

If your organisation or project has a website, please add the Youth Music ‘lock-up’ logo and provide a link to Youth Music’s website: www.youthmusic.org.uk

If appropriate to your project, you may also want to link to our online community for music education professionals, the Youth Music Network: http://network.youthmusic.org.uk

 

About Youth Music text

If you need to explain who Youth Music are (for example on your website, or in a press release) then we have some standard text for you to use in three different lengths.

Short version
Music-making is life-changing. Youth Music believes every child should be given the chance to make music. Visit www.youthmusic.org.uk

Medium version
Music-making is life-changing. Every year, Youth Music provides more than 75,000 young people with the opportunity to make music, helping them to overcome the challenges they face in their lives. Our music projects support young people to develop their creative and social skills, make positive contributions to their community and improve their wellbeing.

We know that many young people still need our help. Join us in our mission to give every child the chance to make music. Visit www.youthmusic.org.uk

Generating publicity

We feel it’s important that the value of the work done by all the organisations Youth Music supports is publicly recognised.

We therefore ask that you grasp everyopportunity you can to publicise the great work you do in your local or relevant sector press. This helps to build a regional and national profile both for your organisation and for Youth Music. Positive publicity can also help you to secure partnership funding and long-term sustainability.

We recommend that you try to attract media attention at least once during your grant funding period. We hope this guide to writing a press release helps you take the first step in generating worthwhile publicity.

 

Share your stories

We fundraise from the general public, trusts and companies so that we are able to support even more life-changing music-making projects. The most powerful way of encouraging people to donate is by sharing the amazing work of projects funded by Youth Music.

Celebrate your project's successes by sharing your stories, music, videos and photographs on the Youth Music Network, or by emailing them to comms@youthmusic.org.uk. We can also help you promote your events and concerts on our social media channel, so do get in touch.

 

FAQs

My organisation is already funded by Arts Council via another funding stream. Do I have to acknowledge Arts Council on my materials more than once?

 

If you have any queries regarding Arts Council branding related to funding streams other than Youth Music funding (e.g. NYMO, NPO, Arts Award) then please contact grantawardlogo@artscouncil.org.uk or your Arts Council Relationship Manager. We would still be interested to hear the outcome of your discussion. Please drop us a line at comms@youthmusic.org.uk.
