Access to funding

Access to funding

Funding is key to the development and progression of brass bands and brass groups. There are many varied ways in which bands can raise funding for their activities, projects, and running costs, and Brass Bands England assists bands to access these.

Our liaison officers connect with bands through funding network meetings, press articles, email, telephone calls, via brass networks, and with 1:1 advice for member bands.

This approach ensures that all English bands have the chance to benefit from local, regional and national grant funding sources, as well as learning about the latest alternative methods for gaining cash and support in kind.

Bands also have access to current techniques in bid-writing and gaining sponsorship and backing from business, as well as associate organisations who can help bands on a practical and local level.
