Publicising your project and sharing content
We feel it’s important that the value of the work done by all the organisations Youth Music supports is publicly recognised. We therefore ask that you grasp everyopportunity you can to publicise the great work you do in your local or relevant sector press. This helps to build a regional and national profile both for your organisation and for Youth Music. Positive publicity can also help you to secure partnership funding and long-term sustainability. We recommend that you try to attract media attention at least once during your grant funding period.
We hope this guide to writing a press release helps you take the first step in generating worthwhile publicity.
Share your stories
We fundraise from the general public, trusts and companies so that we are able to support even more life-changing music-making projects. The most powerful way of encouraging people to donate is by sharing the amazing work of projects funded by Youth Music. Celebrate your project's successes by sharing your stories, music, videos and photographs on the Youth Music Network, or by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We can also help you promote your events and concerts on our social media channel, so do get in touch.
