About this fund

At the Music For All Charity they believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn to play music. They make grants available to address the musical needs of community music groups and educational organisations.

They support projects and initiatives taking place throughout the UK that all aim to bring music to their community and would benefit from a “helping hand” to fulfil their potential in becoming truly sustainable music programmes.

Grants are available under a number of different categories, each with their own criteria and award amounts. See the Music for All website for full details of these.

The award categories are:
– BBB Trust Award
– Working with primary-school aged children
– Chronic diseases and conditions affecting quality of life
