Music for All award grants typically up to £2,500 to not-for-profit organisations, VCSEs, registered charities and schools that aim to bring musical projects to their local communities.
Funding is available for musical instrument costs, using music to break down barriers, providing a variety of educational opportunities as well as helping to find ways to integrate many diverse and minority groups positively into society.
The main things that the trustees look for are:
- How many new musicians will the project create and support?
- How sustainable the project is, so as we can be sure that people are able to continue their musical journeys
- Whether there are any other organisations supporting the project that can help with funding, or if you’ve applied to any other charities.

- Summer: Application deadline is 1st February for funding requirement in April
- Autumn: Application deadline is 1st July for funding requirement in September
