Leave a Legacy

After you have looked after those closest to you, a gift in your Will could do amazing things for young musicians. You can also help talented children continue their musical journey by leaving a legacy and passing on a musical life.

Name an Award

When you attach your name, the name of a loved one or the name of your company to an Award, you’re associated with giving wonderful music to the world. If you’d like to set up an annual Award to support a genre, instrument, region, organisation or in honour of an individual, we can help you find the way that works best for you.

Trusts and Foundations

We’re always very happy to talk to charities who have similar objectives to Young Sounds UK- to support talented young musicians in financial need - to explore the potential of working together more closely and so increasing our impact.


Are you looking for a charity to share your expertise and time? Perhaps you're a musician yourself, perhaps you know someone who has inspired you, perhaps you just want to support the next generation; but whatever your reason to want to help, we're always on the lookout for new volunteers.

Our supporters

We’re so thankful for to our donors and funders who give generously to support young musicians.
