Regional Ensemble Funding Grants

The Cornwall Music Education Hub provides a grant scheme to support ensembles for children and young people across the county.  The scheme is available to any ensemble which is open to all children and young people (ie not an ensemble for a specific school or college).  This year we are able to offer grants for funding from March 2018 up to March 2020.  

Leaders of currently funded ensembles are invited to re-apply to the Hub for a grant to support the running costs of their ensembles.  We are also inviting new ensembles to apply to the Hub for Start Up funding to enable them to set up new ensembles.  

Any ensemble wishing to apply for a grant must complete and submit the application and budget forms (attached below) to Tanya Moore (tmoore@corwall.gov.uk) by the closing date of 31st January 2018.

All applications will be reviewed by members of the Hub Strategic Advisory Panel against the Assessment Matrix below and decisions will be communicated by 20th February.  Grants to successful organisations will be paid at the end of each term. 

Any organisation or music leader interested in finding out more about the scheme should refer to the guidance information below or contact the Hub Manager, Tanya Moore - tmoore@corwall.gov.uk or the Hub Progression and Ensemble Leads,  Janet Elston and Patrick Bailey.
