Funding for Youth Music Making Activities (England)
Youth Music, the UK's largest children's music charity, has announced that its grant making programme has re-opened for applications. Through its funding programme, Youth Music makes grants of up to £250,000 to support projects that provide music-making activities for children and young people, especially those young people in challenging circumstances.

Charities and social enterprises can apply for loans and investment of between £25,000 and £1 million as long as they can clearly show how investment repayments will be made. Full details including an Expression of Interest form can be found on the Social and Sustainable Capital (SASC) website.
This England: How Arts Council England uses its investment to shape a national cultural ecology
The Arts Council has responded to the debate on the regional balance of parts funding with a report.
This England: How Arts Council England uses its investment to shape a national cultural ecology, sets out how the ten year ACE strategy "Great art for everyone" is redressing the balance, and attempts to put the debate into the context of a national strategy that includes the resources of London and how they can benefit the regions.
The report, answering the call for research for the Commons culture select committee which has launched an inquiry into the issue, sets out to show how the investment decisions within the strategy, now four years in, are having an effect in making great art and culture available to everyone in England.
"The arts ecology of England is complex and interrelated and there are inherent and long standing challenges in achieving our ambition , in reaching all parts of the country, rural and urban, cities and the suburbs and in reaching people from many different communities" said Alan Davey, ACE's chief executive. "To do this well, we need a strong and nationally connected arts infrastructure in our capital city as much as we need an equally strong and vibrant arts infrastructure in the regions.'
