Youth Music has six priority funding areas. Your project should fit into at least one of these priority areas:


  1. Early years

Children aged 0-5 who face barriers to accessing music-making as a result of their circumstances or where they live. We encourage projects that promote:

  • Access to quality, creative musical experiences that support children’s developmental needs.
  • Shared learning between early years specialists, music specialists and parents, so that all become skilled, confident, and engaged in encouraging young children’s musicality.
  • Workforce diversity.

  1. Young adults

Young adults aged 16-25 who want to take their music further, or for whom music can support wider personal and social outcomes. We encourage projects that:

  • Improve young people’s confidence, skills, social networks and emotional wellbeing as well as providing specific mentoring, networking and industry opportunities.
  • Have been co-created with young adults.
  • Increase and enhance engagement with employment, education and training.

  1. Disabled young people

We use the term ‘disabled’ rather than ‘SEN/D’ in line with the social model of disability, which states that disabling barriers make life harder for disabled people, and puts the onus on society to provide the right support to overcome disabling barriers. We encourage projects for disabled young people (aged 0 – 25) that:

  • Ensure that they have equitable access to music education that meets their needs and supports their progression.
  • Provide routes for disabled young people in the workforce.

  1. Young people facing barriers

Young people who face barriers to music-making due to their characteristics or life circumstances or as a result of where they live. We encourage projects that:

  • Are youth-led, and offer culturally relevant and engaging music programmes that promote personal and social outcomes alongside musical development.
  • Work in partnership with other organisations and agencies to reach young people facing barriers, and ensure that their needs are met.

  1. The youth justice system

Children and young people who are, have been, or are at risk of being involved with the youth justice system. We encourage projects that:

  • Are youth-led, and offer culturally relevant and engaging music programmes that promote personal and social outcomes alongside musical development.
  • Work in partnership with other organisations and agencies to support progression and ensure that ensure that young people’s needs are met.

  1. Organisations and the workforce

Work that benefits the people and organisations who provide inclusive music-making opportunities for children and young people. We encourage projects that support and encourage:

  • Organisations to be innovative, resilient and inclusive.
  • A diverse workforce that is networked and skilled in inclusive practice with children and young people.
