Online member meetup (youth groups)

This event is for youth member groups; that is groups which are only for young people or groups which have a youth group which is separate from the main group.

We know that our youth member groups up and down the UK are feeling the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on their activities. With uncertainty around how to get through these difficult times, we think it’s more important than ever for us to help youth music groups to get in touch with each other and share learning, ideas and to support one other.

Online donation platforms

When fundraising for your group, there are lots of websites that you can use to take and manage your donations.

With most online donation platforms you can create a page for your group, where you can tell your story about who you are and what you are fundraising for, as well as add images and branding. You can then point people to this page where they make their online donation.

Increasing your income: Overview

We know one of the biggest worries our members have is the long-term financial health of their group. Even groups who make a surplus each year can have that nagging thought: 'what happens if something goes wrong next year?' More money would mean less worry and more stability, and perhaps more importantly it would mean more opportunities to try new things and ways of enjoying making music.
