The Youth Music Recharge Fund offers grants of up to £90k to boost organisations in their post-Covid recovery.

This core funding programme is for established not-for-profit organisations who support children and young people to make, learn or earn in music. It will help people and organisations to recharge from the effects of the pandemic. 

You can apply for a total of £90,000, with a maximum of £30,000 per year. The funding period is between one and three years.

This is a flexible grant to help navigate the risks and opportunities that will arise in the coming years. The funding will be invested in organisations to bring about two outcomes:

  • Improved wellbeing of staff, freelancers, volunteers, and young people. Embedding good wellbeing in day-to-day working to ensure a healthy and motivated team.
  • Improved capacity and capability of organisations. Helping organisations grow, adapt and be more sustainable.

All proposals must meet both outcomes.

The deadline for applications is 14 January 2022.
