Atsain Fund

Atsain funds work for young people aged 0 – 25 engaging in music who experience barriers through life circumstances, geographical issues, identity or background, and is backed by investment from Youth Music, thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery, and Anthem’s resources with support from founding patrons and Welsh Government.

The third Atsain funding round is now closed. The fourth round of Atsain will open in January 2024.

The application panel for fourth round applications will meet in February and applicants will be contacted in early March to let them know whether their application has been successful.


Download and read the Application Guidelines and Frequently Asked Questions below. Please find accessible formats below, including audiovisual and large print.
