Restore The Music UK Sony Music Social Justice Fund

Restore the Music UK is a charity that aims to change the shape of music provision in state schools, more specifically those in areas of high socio-economic deprivation. By focussing private and corporate sector investment on levelling up the provision of music education and resources, the main objective is to enable equality of access and participation and open the gateway to transformative opportunities and multiple pathways to all.

Sony Music UK’s Social Justice Fund awarded a grant which enabled a three-year nationwide expansion of Restore the Music’s Capital Grants for Schools programme, launching in Birmingham, Greater Manchester and Newcastle.

The programme offers tailored grants for instruments, equipment and teacher training to primary and secondary schools, targeted at schools with above-average Free School Meals and Pupil Premium percentages. The regional expansion will reach a broader range of pupils, enhancing music within the curriculum and helping to unlock creativity to offer students all the benefits of an education in the arts.
