Spirit of Achievement Music & Dance Challenge Fund

This year’s Spirit of Achievement Challenge Fund is all about inspiring people through music and dance.

We are currently seeking submissions for funding and plan to award grants of £100,000 - £250,000 to three separate projects that meet the following criteria:

  • Located in England or Wales

  • Allows disabled and non-disabled people to participate on equal terms

  • Is centred around music and / or dance

We’d like to hear from organisations with projects that give people of all abilities the chance to develop skills, confidence and expressive abilities through anything that involves music and / or dance. We're particularly keen to hear from projects in the East of England.
