CrewCare is a volunteer, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to improving the welfare of all production workers in the live music industry sector including technical and backstage personnel, their loved ones and all who work or have worked ‘behind the scenes’ in Australian live music.
It’s a company limited by guarantee. It is governed by a board of 12 directors, all industry veterans, whose remit is to represent the wishes of its member stakeholders.
CrewCare aims are to provide Support, Advocacy, Fundraising and Education to its members and all those working in a highly stressful Industry.
CrewCare is all about supporting technical and backstage personnel and their loved ones, those who work or have worked in the Australian live music and entertainment scenes.
“A lot of crew are in financial, emotional and physical distress. A lot of them don’t put their hand up. Their cries often go unheard – but not any more. CrewCare will make a difference – with your help. Together we can, and we will, make a difference to this live music industry.”Howard Freeman – CrewCare Co-Founder
The pressure and demands of the entertainment industry can be intense, particularly on live production crew. It is an industry that functions on time constraints and performance under pressure. Working under such demanding conditions can sometimes have huge repercussions, not just on individuals, but partners, families and friends as well.
A not for profit organisation, CrewCare organised the national 2019 Roady4Roadies events which raised over $62,000 for crew in its first year and will continue and expand in 2020. There are many other areas of fund-raising well advanced in their planning by the CrewCare team which includes some of the most experienced figures in the Australian live production world and associated music industry areas.
Proudly partnering with Support Act, the aim of CrewCare is to raise money and awareness whilst looking after the welfare of all Australian professional production workers. CrewCare directs all donations and fundraised monies through the Support Act Roadies Fund, ensuring that crew have access to ongoing vital crisis relief and mental health services.

“Many of our top industry professionals, from all areas of the music business, are now working together to establish this. Agents, promoters, publicists, venues, labels, managers, artists… the list goes on, all freely giving their time (and money), working alongside the best crew in the country… the best in the world!”Tony Moran – CrewCare Co-Founder
CrewCare is not just about fundraising. It is already, and will continue to be, a representative music industry organisation working in the areas of education, advocacy, research, support, mental health and physical wellbeing.
CrewCare is simply the organisation that the Australian live production industry has needed for a long time. Now it is here.
