We also develop and implement life-saving mental health and wellbeing programs and services.

Make a Bequest

Music workers are a proud and resilient bunch, and some can be reluctant to seek help, even though they might be in financial distress or just need to talk to someone about their wellbeing. If you know someone who needs our help, please encourage them to contact us.


Whether you want to learn how to give or get help, look after your own own wellbeing or hear how others in the music community have overcome challenges, this is for you.
