Bromley Youth Music Trust BR2
Bromley Youth Music Trust (BYMT) is losing 10 percent of its local government funding from Bromley Council in 2012/13. The council provided £415k of funding for the charity in 2010/11.
BYMT is also expected to see its current £310k grant from the Standards Fund axed or significantly reduced.
The Trust’s other sources of funding are aroun £600k from tuition fees for classes, and an undisclosed sum from Friends of BYMT.
BYMT exists to help young people in Bromley to develop their musical abilities. BYMT teaches between 5000 and 6000 children every year to sing or to play an instrument, and runs a number of bands, choirs and orchestras.
It also seeks to assist primary schools in the delivery of the music curriculum, provides Music Therapy for children with special needs and Music Technology in partnership with Bromley MyTime.
