Welcome to the Jazz Services website, home of the UK's foremost charitable support organisation for jazz music.
Jazz Services is a registered charity providing a wide range of funding and facilities to those working in jazz in the UK.
On this website you’ll find information on the various services we offer to industry professionals and the general public, a Directory of useful contacts from across the jazz sector, advice and resources for jazz education, career development and international work, a section on British jazz history, links and much more.
"Jazz Services are really there for the musicians. They support all of the different kinds of music that fall under the spectrum of jazz - they are not prejudiced in favour of any particular kind of style. They support people who are just coming up and people who are established. They're really one of a kind."
Christine Tobin, vocalist and composer.

JAZZ SERVICES - NPO FUNDING
In July 2014 the Arts Council England announced its decision to discontinue Jazz Services' NPO funding from April 2015. Since then, as well as continuing our normal work funding and supporting British jazz we have been working hard to secure our own future and the future of the many individuals and organisations with whom we work.
This has included further discussions with the Arts Council, public consultations, support campaigns and an organisational review to help develop a stronger operational model that will allow us to secure future funding and continue our work with and for the UK's jazz scene.
We've periodically released information and updates on the situation as it progresses and we'll continue to do so - you can follow the story and read all the relevant updates from July 2014 by clicking the link below:
