How does Youth Music use your reporting?
Youth Music is an evidence based funder, as such our funding decisions are informed by evidence of ‘what works’ from our portfolio and beyond. We use your reports to help us understand the impact of our funding. By reviewing your reports, we are able to identify learning and effective practice and share that learning with the wider sector.
The information submitted in your reports is analysed on an ongoing basis. We regularly publish case studies and resources, and produce an annual Impact Report which summarise the impact of the projects we have funded across England.
Please note the following links will open on Youth Music's charity website, which is separate from the Youth Music Network.
We're constantly gathering evidence from our grantholders to understand how music-making helps young people, whatever the challenges they're facing. We pass our learning on to others to help music education become more inclusive, and to ensure the best possible outcomes.
Every year we publish our Impact Report which summarises the impact of the projects we have funded across the country.

We invest in music-making projects where they’re needed most, with over 350 taking place nationwide each year. Read about some of the projects we’ve funded and the difference this has made to the organisations running them – and the young people taking part.
