Help Musicians: Financial Hardship Fund

Help Musicians’ second wave of financial hardship support will help those ineligible for government emergency safety nets or unable to survive on what they receive.

Phase 2 opens with a total of £2.55m, made up of £2m from the charity’s reserves, plus generous donations of £500k from music licensing company PPL and £50k from the Lightbody Foundation.

Eligible musicians who are experiencing significant financial hardship can apply for support through three alternative routes, depending on their individual circumstances:

Route 1: I am accepted or applying for Universal Credit.
Route 2: I am not eligible for Universal Credit but am experiencing significant financial hardship.
Route 3: I have complex needs that go beyond financial hardship and would like to speak with a caseworker.
