Musical Inclusion was a programme funded by Youth Music, running from April 2012 to March 2015.

Youth Music invested in 26 Musical Inclusion projects, tasked with ensuring that all children and young people in their local areas were able to access music-making opportunities, by working in and through the (new at that point) Music Education Hubs.

Projects carried out music education work with children in challenging circumstances; workforce development to ensure the quality of the provision; and strategic working to ensure integration of musically inclusive practice in hubs across England.

Sound Sense led the Musical Inclusion Evaluation and Networking team. In June 2014 the team produced an interim evaluation of the programme, The Power of Equality.

Youth Music is working towards a musically inclusive England. Find out more about the concept of musical inclusion here.
