ReBuild Fund

Home / ReBuild Fund







A significant proportion of the MMF’s 1100-strong membership have either not qualified for existing Covid-19 support packages or have been unable to self-furlough due to their responsibilities to their clients. 

MMF ReBuild’s fourth round of funding  will offer grants of up to £3,000 and workshops focusing on resilience, sustainability and the future. 

This round is open to all MMF members including those who have received ReBuild support previously, provided they meet the basic criteria detailed below. 

This new funding round has been made possible following additional donations from PPL, the BRIT Awards co-ordinated by the BPI and the Hipgnosis Songs Fund.

Decision Making and Scoring

Decisions will be made from a small panel made up of elected MMF Board Members, senior staff and a representative from PPL. Applications will be scored against the published criteria (below).
