Creative Scotland - Youth Music Initiative: Access to Music Making


The purpose of the Access to Music Making fund is to create access to high-quality music making opportunities outwith school time for children and young people aged 0 to 25 years (or, aged over 25 if they are disabled, care experienced and/or have been a young carer).

The aims of the fund are to:

  • Create access to high-quality music making opportunities for children and young people aged 0-25 years, particularly for those that would not normally have the chance to participate
  • Enable children and young people to achieve their potential in or through music making
  • Support the development of the youth music sector for the benefit of children and young people

There is one mandatory outcome of the fund: Children and young people must develop their music and music-making skills. In addition, applicants must select a further two outcomes which you intend to deliver through your project.

Full details are available in the fund guidance notes which can be downloaded from the Creative Scotland website.
