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. 

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 Making Music Group Representative (MM Group Rep) , to meet Making Music staff and Board members and discuss the future direction of your association.

Perhaps your group pays its annual membership fee and gets some useful info or services in return, but you have a feeling you could be getting more out of it, or you think that Making Music should be doing something about a particular issue. Or maybe you wonder what Making Music’s plans are for future services and campaigns?
