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.

Make a donation

Every penny will help us foster emerging talent, support professional musicians in a crisis, and care for people in retirement and old age.
