Music Services Partners - National Music Services Working Group for Inclusion

We run the National Music Services Working Group for Inclusion in partnership with Music Mark, the UK association for music education and Youth Music, the national charity investing in young people’s music.

The purpose is for music services to share their learning around inclusion and to provide support and challenge to each other. The action research partners (see below) also share their emerging findings on the drivers and barriers for inclusion.

The group consists of the inclusion action research partners listed below, plus, currently, six others: Calderdale, Ealing, Luton, Northamptonshire, Thurrock, Milton Keynes.

We also present insights and share learning through:

  • conference presentations

  • blogs, videos and other resources 

  • own communication channels

  • Music Mark the UK association for music education website, enews, social media and events

  • Youth Music Network website, enews, social media and events

  • meetings and networking with other professionals

Music Services Partners - inclusion action research

Each year since 2018, we have been providing a fund for music services to deliver action research on the enablers and barriers of inclusion. New services join us each year. Currently there are nine involved: Cambridgeshire, Cornwall, Essex, Hertfordshire, Hull, Liverpool Resonate, Norfolk, Southampton, Waltham Forest. Find out more about our work with music services, and who we are.

The services then share their emerging findings as part of a National Music Services Working Group for Inclusion (see above).

When the annual fund is announced, services can bid to us for £10k per programme. Currently ten music services are involved, and later this year we will fund another three. Find out more about how you can be involved.
