Phase one of Help Musicians’ coronavirus crisis support saw the charity create the Coronavirus Financial Hardship Fund. Our initial aim was to alleviate some of the immediate financial pressures that many professional musicians are facing by offering one-off £500 grants. Help Musicians initially made available £5 million for 10,000 applicants but received in excess of 17,000 applications, and in spite of generous donations from across the music industry and from music lovers like you, currently there is a funding gap.
In addition, as we progress through the COVID-19 pandemic, we are evolving our hardship funding to reflect the needs of musicians. We will need to provide more financial support over the coming months along with supporting musicians with other business needs to help them recover and return to work. Your support is as vital as ever. Please help us by donating whatever you can and help us to support musicians while their future remains so uncertain.
Music touches everyone’s life in some way – the individuals behind the music help fill our lives with lasting memories. Please join us as we approach our Centenary year in 2021 and be a part of our vital work.
