UK charity Youth Music has launched its latest fund aimed at young people and the music projects supporting them.
The Youth Music Recharge Fund has £1.75m to share out between around 40 music organisations across the UK as grants of up to £30k a year for three years.
Organisations using music for projects with young people will be able to spend the grants on salaries, communications, operations, digital development and strategy, training and other costs.
“Our research shows that opportunities for young people decreased during the pandemic, with 63% of music organisations from our national network reporting that they’ve had fewer resources at the same time as demand for services is increasing,” said CEO Matt Griffiths.
“This financial boost will ensure that grassroots music projects, and the people leading them, can bounce back better than before.” Find more details of the fund here.
