How you can make a difference

Our innovative programmes wouldn't exist without the generosity of supporters. Help us continue to make lasting change.

Together, we can create opportunities for young disabled musicians, help break down barriers and provide a platform for their creativity.  

Make a donation

Every donation makes a difference, no matter the amount.  You will be joining a community of amazing people, helping to provide opportunity and enriching the musical landscape.  Simply use the form on the right of this page to make a donation.

Support from businesses

Your business could make a huge difference.  This could be through the sponsorship of events and activities, donations or through your team taking part in fundraising activities.  By supporting young disabled musicians, you can build positivity in your workplace, and increase staff and customer satisfaction.

Trusts and Foundations

Grants from trusts and foundations allow us to open up opportunities for young disabled people to make music, and be part of an inclusive ensemble. Thanks to their generous funding, young disabled people have access to music education and orchestras, which they historically have been excluded from. Trusts and foundations help us raise the funds needed to continue delivery of our innovative and accessible programmes, build diverse audiences and provide successful templates for change within the arts, giving young disabled people the opportunity to be musicians.
