Music Charities


In the same way that youth charities may be able to support you in your music project, you may also wish to look to specific music charities who could prove useful in the planning and execution of your project. You can look at the work they do by following the links below:

Youth Charities


You may be able to gain insight into planning your project from national charities who successfully run music programmes of their own. These programmes often can provide resources or support to anyone running projects, especially if the youth centre/social enterprise is a recognised member of the charity. These national youth charities may be able to offer such resources, or else offer membership which in turn provides such resources. You can find out information by following the relevant links below:
