Music Support

Music Support is a charity that helps peers who work in UK music and live events affected by mental ill-health and/or addiction. Founded in 2016 by people from within the music industry, our team have all been affected personally by these issues and have seen friends, colleagues and heroes lose their careers, families and even their lives.

Music and live events continue to be hit hard by the uncertainty, fear, isolation and financial consequences of the global pandemic. From musicians and DJs to promoters and crew, the way back is still very unclear, meaning our services have never been more important.

We provide peer-led support, education and training and signposting to a network of vetted and approved professionals.

Our mission is to ensure that our peers do not feel alone. We encourage prevention and early intervention but, if required, provide effective and timely help to initiate and maintain recovery.
