If you love music and care about the people who create it, you have come to the right place.

Support Act is the Music Industry’s charity. We provide crisis relief to artists, crew and music workers across all genres who are unable to work due to illness, injury, a mental health issue or some other crisis, including the impact of COVID-19.

We are also committed to promoting good mental health. The Support Act Wellbeing Helpline is a free, confidential 24/7 counselling service that is available to anyone working in Australian music or the arts. It can be accessed by calling #1800 959 500.

Demand for our services has never been higher. You can help by making a donation, leaving a gift in your will, raising funds in the community or for a mate, and more.

All donations over $2 are tax deductible and will be issued with an instant tax receipt.

Here are some of the ways you can help


Every donation we receive helps to make a difference. You can choose where your gift goes.

Make a general donation to “where help is needed most” or to one of our specific funds such as for Roadies or the Wellbeing Helpline.

All donations over $2 will be issued with an instant tax deductible receipt.



If you would like to leave Support Act a gift in your Will or should you decide to include Support Act as a beneficiary, we provide more information here.
