The Music in the Community grants programme is provided by Music for All, the charity of the UK musical instrument industry.

Music for All's overarching objective is to 'make more musicians and to enable and inspire more people to discover their mental and physical benefits that playing a nusical instrument can bring'.

It aims to achieve this by providing small grants to local initiatives across the UK that are seeking to bring music to their local community.

Funding is available for groups that need assistance to fulfil their potential in developing genuinely sustainable music programmes.

Grants can be used for:

  • Musical instrument costs
  • Using music to break down barriers

  • Helping to find ways to intergrate many diverse and minority groups positively into society.

The following types of UK-based organisations may apply for a grant of up to £2,500:

  • Schools,
  • Registered Charities
  • Charitable community groups

Music for All aims to allocate around £50,000 in grants annually.
