Help Musicians is a charity that has been supporting professional musicians for nearly 100 years. In this incredibly difficult year, they have been doing all we can to support the thousands of musicians who are falling through the gaps in government support and are really struggling to survive.
Phase three of Help Musicians’ Financial Hardship Funding is targeted at self-employed musicians who do not qualify for Self-Employment Income Support Scheme and unemployed professional musicians who are unable to make ends meet.
For those who are eligible, and to the extent that funds allow, the charity will offer grant payments from the time their application is successful to March 2021 to top-up Universal Credit payments where relevant.
Where an applicant does not qualify for Universal Credit but is still experiencing significant financial hardship, an assessment will be made based on individual circumstances
