Funding to Develop Music Opportunities for Young People (Scotland)

The next deadline for applying to Creative Scotland Music Initiative (YMI) is the 4th June 2018. YMI provides funding to individuals, organisations and networks to develop opportunities in the music sector for young people (aged 0 – 25 years). There are 2 streams to apply under. These are:

  • Access to Music Making (grants of £1,000 to £40,000 for extracurricular programmes); and
  • Strengthening Youth Music (grants of £1,000 to £20,000 for training programmes).

YMI also provides funding through its School Based Music Making programme. The School Based Music Making Programme is a targeted fund for Scotland’s 32 Local Authorities and Jordanhill School.

Examples of projects funded include:

  • Developing Potential which was set up by Drake Music Scotland, a charity which creates music making opportunities for people with disabilities.
  • Hear My Music is a community music organisation working specifically with young people who have complex needs and/or Autism Spectrum Disorder.
