Five individuals aged 18-30 will receive £30,000 and mentoring to support their creative practice for a year.

Returning from a very stimulating (and just a little bit exhausting) trip around the country, working with 200 people or so over the past two weeks, I felt it was a good time to collect and share some initial thoughts and reactions to where we are with all this evaluation and outcomes stuff.

Read about Youth Music's investment in the music education sector in the 2013-14 Impact Report, and the findings from projects the charity supports in the new Learning Report.

Hi - I'm looking into the possibility of getting funding to run a 4 week intensive project during summer 2015 to get local teenagers playing in a samba "bloco" at the Notting Hill Carnival.

Music for Alice has launched a new round of funding aimed at youth and health-related organisations.

Future Talent is now accepting applications for its one and three year music bursaries. The Charity is looking for gifted young musicians from anywhere in the UK, from low-income backgrounds. Each bursary includes: mentoring, career and general music advice, performance opportunities and a financial award.

Grants totalling £3.3m will be awarded to 70 music-making organisations across the country, bringing the total amount allocated over the last year to £10.2m.

As Youth Music reopens its grants programme with the aim of making England more musically inclusive, I thought it might be useful to share some thoughts about what this means to me, why I think it’s still necessary, and what it has to do with the ACE strategy of ‘great art and culture for everyone’.

The Music Education Hub in Telford and Wrekin Council applied to the Creative Employment Programme to create four Creative Apprenticeships for young people within the local authority and its arts venues.

When the new grants programme was announced I was full of trepidation at the prospect of needing to learn a new 'funding language' of outcome indicators and evaluation paradigms but I was very pleasantly surprised and would like to say well done to YM on the grants programme and the resources that accompany it.
