Help Musicians UK announced as the official charity partner at this year's SAY Award

Help Musicians UK is thrilled to partner with the SAY Award, a prestigious and exciting arts prize produced by the Scottish Music Industry Association (SMIA). The award celebrates, promotes and rewards the most outstanding Scottish albums released each year. Respected by artists and valued by the industry, The SAY Award is responsible for a surge in musical discovery and an explosion of impassioned debate on social media.

The partnership supports the charity’s commitment to developing stronger links with the Scottish music industry and comes ahead of plans to have a permanent presence in Scotland later this year.
