Grantholder communications toolkit
Congratulations on receiving a Youth Music grant for your music-making project! As part of your grant requirements we’d like you to do the following:
Celebrate the funding and its impact
By shouting about your Youth Music funding and celebrating the impact it has made, you will help strengthen the case for continued investment in music-making for all children and young people.
Share practice on the Youth Music Network
You are now part of a network of 300 other organisations supporting young people’s lives in music through Youth Music funding. We think it’s really important for those involved in Youth Music activities to work in partnership, learn from others, join up activities and grow your professional networks.
Read on for information and top tips to help you meet your requirements. If you have any questions or issues, get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please use the ‘lock-up’ version of our logo, which shows that our funding comes from the National Lottery via Arts Council England.
Use this logo on all materials associated with your project, including on your website and in other materials you produce such as videos, resources, flyers, posters etc.
We’d love you to shout about your project on social media. Share photos, quotes, videos, resources and music – and don’t forget to tag us in! As a minimum, we expect you to celebrate the grant award on social media.
Blog about your learning, connect with other projects and post jobs, resources and workforce-related events.

We’ll use these on our website, in publications and other resources, and on our social media channels.
You can send us music and videos throughout your project and include other media in your final report. Please ensure you collect the right permissions for us to use the materials.
