Funding

Postcode Community Trust was established in 2014 and to date has awarded £6 million in funding to over 700 projects across Great Britain.

Fifty thousand pounds has been awarded to Noise Solution to significantly enhance and evolve its impact capture analysis and use of digital storytelling, placing the organisation at the forefront of impact capture in our sector, UK and indeed worldwide. 

Fundraising for arts activities is a highly competitive process that can be very time-consuming with disappointing results. Written by Sound Connections Chair Katrina Duncan, this guide is intended to help you think before you take the plunge, to consider how to prepare for making your pitch for support and do all you can to ensure that your bid is the best it can be.

Wesleyan has just launched the Welseyan Foundation, a fund designed to provide financial support for local community groups and charities, to make a positive difference across four key themes: health, education, social development and innovation.

As external evaluators of Fund C, we are delighted to share some initial research findings and observations about what needs to be put in place for partnership-working to be effective and about its role in embedding inclusive music-making strategically and at scale.  

In light of Youth Music's refreshed definition for Coldspots projects, I delved into the evaluation data we've received from Coldspots projects since 2014. I wanted to see what they could tell us about improvements in the confidence of participants of our funded projects, and noticed that there were many more instances reported of girls and young women showing improvements in confidence than boys and young men. I picked out some key points that emerged from my research to explore this further.

Graucob Music Awards support young musicians of school age with a bursary of up to £750 to support their musical endeavours including specialist lessons, festivals, training events, instrumental purchase. 

Music for Alice has opened a new round of funding for youth organisations and groups using music for health and rehabilitation purposes. 

 

A project that looks to bring together Downs Syndrome support groups through musical collaboration; training and mentoring for young female musicians; music technology with children and young people in challenging circumstances; and music and play in palliative care, all make up Sound Connections Innovate programme 2017.

Today we are pleased to publish the application guidelines for the second round of Youth Music’s Fund C grant awards. Successful organisations will play a key strategic role in helping Youth Music achieve a musically inclusive England.

National Charity, "Music For All" kindly donated some music instruments and amps for young people who attend the Beats, Bars and Banter project in  Rugby, Warwickshire. The music equipment will be used within the weekly workshops that take place every Thursday 4-6pm at Hill Street Youth Centre, Hill Street, Rugby. Young people will also be able to take home the acoustic guitars so they can continue to practice away from the workshops :) For more info on "Music for All" visit: http://www.musicforall.org.uk/

Also, here's a video of the first two weeks of the Rugby music sessions :) More will follow shortly... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hvBUYEJ8LA
