Support our work

Music is a wonderful gift, but a musician's life can be tough and many need help at times to get out of difficulty. As the leading charity for musicians in the UK, we are a vital lifeline.

Volunteer, fundraise, make a donation, leave a legacy – there are many ways to help and they all make a real difference. The more people get involved, the more we can do to ensure a thriving musical culture in the UK.

Who we have helped

“In 2001 I was diagnosed with manic depression. It prevented me from playing live and going to the studio. Help Musicians UK got me back on my feet, I'd be lost without them.”
