Music probably plays a big part in your life, as it does with most of us. And you’ll know how tough it can be to survive as an artist or music worker particularly when the unexpected happens – the situation can quickly become a crisis.
Jack McCord is a DJ, and has worked in music here and overseas for many years. When he had a serious motorbike accident which left him with broken bones and an acquired brain injury, Support Act stepped in to help him and his young family. We provided financial and practical help, to bring his family to his bedside in hospital and support them as Jack went through rehabilitation.
Watch Jack’s story:
There are so few safety nets for people who work in music. But as Jack says, “Support Act were just there. It was financial help, which was what my family and I really needed. All our funds had gone towards hospital bills, towards staying alive. The help I received was life changing”.
In order to keep helping families like Jack’s when they need it most, we need your financial support.
Thank you for your support. All gifts over $2 are tax deductible.
Support Act is the only charity that provides practical assistance to people working in music who are struggling with an injury, illness, mental health problem or some other kind of crisis. Crisis relief means we need to step in fast and that can be financial or practical help. We also help with families and dependents and contribute to funeral costs.
