Support Act is a charity, unique in Australia, helping music professionals who are facing hardship due to illness, injury or some other crisis that impacts on their ability to work in music

Supporting Australian music professionals during the tough times

We help music professionals of all kinds: singers, songwriters, composers, musicians, roadies, techies, managers, staffers and others. We treat every request for help confidentially and make no judgement about people’s circumstances

How we help

We provide financial assistance (which we call a grant), advice and practical assistance. Whilst Support Act is a charity, we prefer to think of any financial assistance we are able to give as a grant, awarded in acknowledgement of your contribution to Australian music
