Information about the Help Musicians’ Coronavirus Financial Hardship Fund
Thanks to ACE and DCMS who provided £650k of hardship funding, Help Musicians was able to extend hardship funding into 2022, making further payments to musicians facing financial hardship due to the disruption caused by Covid. The total amount of funds available was £1m (Help Musicians added £350k of its own funds into the pot), which was distributed to musicians whose needs are greatest.
