Councillor Funds index

Many local councils have funding available for individual counsellors to allocate to projects and community organisations in their area. Exactly how the funding is used from one council to the next does vary, but common themes are: 
 
Helping local organisations to improve the lives and wellbeing of people in the area 
Encouraging the development of, and active participation in, community activities
 

Local Authority arts funding index

Local Authorities (LAs) often have multiple grants available over short periods alongside extra help like guidance, advice, and links to other contacts in the area. Although we cover some LA grants in our Funding Finder tool, we've also put together the tables below as a quick and easy way of finding the relevant page on your Local Authority's website for all they have to offer in the way of help.

The Making Music Council

Annual council meetings are one of the opportunities you have as a group, through your nominated representative, to meet Making Music staff and Board members face to face and discuss the future direction of your association.

Making Music Council meetings report (July to October 2019)

This year again we held 7 meetings – one each in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and four in England, attended by an average of just below 13 members each, an increase of over 20% on last year when we first experimented with 7 (as opposed to just one UK-wide) meetings.
