Serious run a huge range of projects to ensure that everyone can grow through music and music-making, and the most promising musicians can reach their full potential in a challenging industry.

In 2012 Serious Trust was established as a registered charity to support the specific areas of Serious’ work which have these charitable purposes, and which are entirely dependent on additional funding to deliver.

The charity exists to fund projects which ensure:
