The passing of a loved one is always difficult. It can be especially stressful if no provision has been made for the cost of the funeral, placing a sometimes impossible burden on family and friends. 

Support Act fully appreciates the importance of farewelling loved ones who have worked in the music industry with dignity. We are able to contribute up to $5,000 towards the cost of a funeral. Please apply below and we will endeavour to respond to your application within 48 hours.

Please be aware that we will pay the funeral provider directly and are not able to provide support for memorials or wakes.
