The power of music is something we all feel. So many events in life need a soundtrack: a long road trip, a first dance at a wedding, a carefully chosen piece to mark a loved one’s passing.
Music makes memories.
And yet, as a professional, a career in music can be uncertain and risky. Even the most talented find themselves unable to work when illness, injury or some other problem strikes. Without an income, a setback can quickly become a crisis.
This is where Support Act steps in. Support Act is a registered charity established by the music industry to provide a safety net for music professionals facing hardship.
If you are a music professional, Support Act is here to help, because your life is music.
Real People. Real Stories.
Whilst Support Act is a charity, we prefer to think that any financial assistance we are able to give as a grant, awarded in acknowledgment of your contribution to Australian music.
“The word ‘real value’ from an organisation like Support Act doesn’t even come close to it.”
“For my whole life it was just him and I. It happened out of nowhere, his passing. Finance wasn’t something I was thinking about at all before then.”
