Many of you may be aware of – and have worked with – the regional representatives of Youth Music over the past years. The organisation has recently undertaken a major staff restructure, which will mean that – amongst other things – the roles of Regional Executive Officers will come to an end on 31st March 2012.
The restructure will reduce grant management/administration and running costs to no more than 8% of Youth Music’s ACE lottery funding in line with government policy for lottery distributors. This will in turn mean a boost to YM’s grant giving, providing much needed financial support to organisations who wish to help change young lives through the power of music.
If you have recently submitted a grant application – or plan to in the next few months – and have not received clarification as to how the changes might affect you – contact Jo Beal, Youth Music Regional Executive Officer – South West (North), firstname.lastname@example.org 07545 735240
