About Arts Council England

Arts Council England’s support is central to the success of Youth Music, having supported the charity since its foundation in 1999 using public funding from the National Lottery. We are the national development agency for creativity and culture. By 2030 we want England to be a country in which the creativity of each of us is valued and given the chance to flourish and where everyone of us has access to a remarkable range of high quality cultural experiences. Between 2018 and 2022, we will invest £1.45 billion of public money from government and an estimated £860 million from the National Lottery to help deliver this vision.

For a young person who has established their own music-related business, e.g. events, record label, marketing and PR.
