Help Musicians UK Announces New National Grants Programme (UK)
Independent music charity Help Musicians UK has announced a new funding programme for organisations.
Its National Grants Programme is inviting applications from organisations working with musicians across the UK. Successful applicants will receive between £5,000 and £40,000 in funding over a three-year period. The scheme, which runs until 2021, is the first to be launched as part of a new strategy to modernise the way the charity reaches musicians from across all genres and the whole of the country.
The National Grants Programme is part of Help Musicians UK's wider Creative Programme, and want to fund activity which offers timely and relevant opportunities for musicians to develop their talent, skills and artistic practice at any stage in their careers. All musicians benefitting from the initiative should be over the age of 18 and either UK residents or have been resident in the UK for at least 3 years.
