Get involved

In Winter 2020, we will be offering two action-research musical inclusion grants for music services. Each provides £10,000 for music services to use to learn about the challenges, enablers and benefits of developing programmes of inclusive music making for children in challenging circumstances.

Successful applicants will deliver work, training and evaluation within a year (April 2021-March 2022), and will have support from joining our National Music Services Working Group for Inclusion. We are looking for music services who are really keen to challenge themselves to produce organisational change and to share the learning arising from this.

You can take a look at the application form and guidance from previous rounds here, but please note, applications are not yet open for 2020.

In the meantime:

  • Make sure to sign up for our newsletter to get advice, information and resources for music services wanting to become more inclusive.

  • Contact us if you’re interested in being part of the National Music Services Working Group for Inclusion (you don’t have to have a grant to join this group).
