London youth charity Sound Connections is inviting applications to Innovate, the organisation’s long-standing programme providing funding and support for music projects for children and young people in challenging circumstances.
Who Innovate is for
Applicants should be working with people age 0-25 in London through music to apply for up to £2250 to explore new ideas and approaches to working with children and young people in early years (0-5 years) and/or those facing challenging circumstances. Providing funding, project mentoring and support, Innovate is particularly aimed at individuals and grassroots organisations looking to launch or incubate a project idea and develop fundraising skills.
Sound Connections encourages applicants to consult with young people and work with local partners such as Music Education Hubs, youth and community services and other referral agencies to propose the strongest offer. Last year, Innovate supported music-making in a hospice and a Down’s Syndrome support group, Girls Rock London‘s young leaders programme, and a youth centre music tech project.
Successful candidates work in close partnership with Sound Connections to develop and deliver their projects.
The deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday 18 May 2018. Sound Connections encourages all applicants to book a phone surgery prior to applying.
