Dear Parent/ Carer,
The Perth and Kinross Music Foundation is a registered charity and aims to financially support young musicians who attend school within Perth and Kinross. To qualify for application, the young musician must either be enrolled in a state school and receive music tuition and/or attend Central Groups or be enrolled in any school and attend Central Groups.
If you are on low income and in receipt of Working Tax Credits, Child Tax Credits OR Universal Tax Credits (UTC) relating to these, or have very exceptional financial circumstances we may be able to provide some financial assistance to you.
This year, if you wish to apply for financial assistance with Tuition and/or Central Groups fees for the academic session of 2019-20, please complete the attached form and send the form with photocopied HMRC Statement of any Working Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit or evidence of UTC or any other awards or income relevant to the tax year 2019-20, to the Foundation Secretary at the address, or email address, stated on the form.
Alternatively you can use the online application form on our website or use the online application form on the Perth and Kinross Website.
PLEASE NOTE – Families need to apply to Perth and Kinross Music Foundation if their child/young person has been learning previously but they have not yet received the link to the council “returning player” portal. Similarly for potential new families.
The Trustees will consider all applications sympathetically and will treat each case individually and confidentially. Please do complete the form as clearly as possible. To cut down on postal costs, it is our intention to email acknowledgement, queries and the final application decision where possible.
The Foundation is currently in the process of contacting present, and potential, sponsors and supporters to raise funds for the academic year of 2019-20. Please be advised that decisions regarding assistance may not take place until later in the academic year, though we hope to advise you as soon as possible.
Also please be advised that a new application for assistance must be made to the Foundation for each academic year.
