The Hard Rock Heals Foundation, in partnership with Hard Rock Cafe London and Hard Rock Cafe Piccadilly Circus, today announced a $5,000 grant to be awarded to Youth Music as part of its commitment to improving the lives and resiliency of the local communities where Hard Rock serves and operates. London-based Youth Music, which supports grassroots organisations and young people directly to make, learn and earn in music, is one of 50 local grant winners around the world to receive contributions totaling $250,000 from Hard Rock International’s charitable arm this year.

“Since 2016, Hard Rock Heals Foundation has proudly awarded hundreds of programs like Youth Music to provide support to people in need in the communities we serve. We are hopeful that these grants will bring about positive transformations in London and in all the places we serve around the globe.”

Jon Lucas, President of Hard Rock Heals Foundation and Chief Operating Officer of Hard Rock International

Matt Griffiths, Youth Music CEO, says: “This vital support from Hard Rock Heals Foundation will allow us to continue our mission to spread good practice and learning throughout grassroots music. In our nearly 25-year history, we’ve learnt a lot. Yet every day, we are still inspired by innovative ideas from the Youth Music community. By sharing our collective knowledge and building new connections, we believe this community can spark sustainable, nationwide changes in sector practices. Meaning even more young people can change their life through music.”

This program is another example of the foundation’s ongoing commitment to supporting community-run programs through grants, offering enhanced opportunities for those who share the values of Hard Rock’s philanthropy and giving. The $250,000 in funds provided by the Hard Rock Heals Foundation in 2024 aim to bolster programs dedicated to mental health awareness and research, preventing human trafficking, and ensuring children grow up healthy, educated, and safe.
