Funding for youth led community music projects in Aberdeenshire


Are you a young person who loves music, with a great idea for a music project?

This year in Aberdeenshire, funding has been allocated to support community music projects organised by young people, for young people age 12 - 25yrs.

It will be given to small groups in Aberdeenshire who can show that their project covers the following criteria:

  • Young people plan it for young people.
  • It is fun!
  • It is supported by Aberdeenshire Council staff e.g. CLD Worker, Teacher, Social Worker etc. This is needed to make it possible to get the funding to you.
  • The project employs professional musicians who are paid at the current Musicians Union rate.
  • The project shows how young people develop their music and music-making skills.
  • Minimum budget of £1,000 per project

Please read our FAQs first, and email ymi@aberdeenshire.gov.uk if you have any other questions. If it's complicated, email us your phone number and we'll call you back for a chat. This opportunity will remain open until all funding is allocated or until 31st March 2024 Projects must be completed by end June 2024.
