Second Round of Youth Music Catalyser Fund Opens for Applications

Deadline for Expressions of Interest for Round Two is 4 November 2022 at 5.00pm

Funding is available to UK based organisations who are running music projects in England for children and young people (aged 25 or under) to sustain work, scale-up delivery, or create change in sector practice.

Youth Music’s Catalyser Fund is supporting organisations by providing larger grants to support the scaling-up of music projects for young people over a longer-term period of two to four years. The second round of the fund is inviting applications from constituted UK based organisations with a track record supporting children and young people facing barriers to make, learn or earn in music.

Grants of between £30,001 and £300,000 are available, and the funding can support a mix of delivery costs and core costs. Projects should last between 24 and 48 months.

The Catalyser Fund has a two-stage application process. Stage 1 is to submit a short Expression of Interest (EOI) form. If the EOI is successful, the applicant will be invited to Stage 2 where they are
required to submit a more detailed application form.
