Youth Music has announced a new Emergency Fund to offer additional support to music-making organisations affected by coronavirus.

The Emergency Fund is designed to support organisations facing the following challenges:
The British Muslim Covid-19 Fund is here to assist all those great organisations that are supporting to protect and assist the most vulnerable through these testing times. To all our charities and volunteer groups, we have a duty to support you. Many of you are tirelessly working to bolster the NHS staff, assist with social care, feed the isolated and assist affected families with bereavement and funeral services.
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, we understand that traditional fundraising techniques might be more difficult to carry out. We encourage our members to be safe and stay well by adhering to all of the safety precautions and advice set out by the government. You should keep up to date with official government advice here.
Micro grants of £400 are available for charities and community groups that are existing members of the “Neighbourly” CSR platform, to support good causes that are helping communities affected by the Coronavirus outbreak.
The funding is for activities that support members of the community who are suffering economically, socially or from ill health as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak.
This may include, but is not limited to:
The Resilience & Recovery Loan Fund (RRLF) is a new fund for social enterprises and charities who are experiencing disruption to their normal business model as a result of COVID-19. It has been established to make an existing government scheme (the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme) more easily accessible to charities and social enterprises. The RRLF is being run by Social Investment Business (SIB) with an initial £25m investment and support from Big Society Capital.
The National Survivor User Network (NSUN) is administering a small fund to support user-led organisations (ULOs) and smaller, unconstituted community groups in England, who might not otherwise be eligible for a grant. Grants of up to £1000 will be available to support community action, peer support, mutual aid and other activities that will make a direct difference to the lives of people living with mental ill-health, trauma and distress during this Covid-19 period.
This fund will open by the end of April.
