The Royal Society of Musicians
The Royal Society of Musicians is Britain’s oldest music charity and its aims remain as relevant today as they were in the earliest years – to provide vital financial assistance, advice and guidance to those professionally active in the world of music but who are unable to work due to accident, illness or old age. Being a charity run by musicians for musicians, the Society is uniquely placed to fully understand the challenges faced within the profession.
The Royal Society of Musicians (RSM), Britain’s oldest music charity, has announced a £500,000 contribution to musicians suffering financial hardship, to be distributed through the Help Musicians Coronavirus Financial Hardship Fund, the vital emergency relief fund from UK charity Help Musicians.
The £5m Help Musicians Coronavirus Financial Hardship Fund was launched on Wednesday March 25 as a direct response to the challenging and uncertain landscape for musicians. The Fund offers a one-off payment of £500 per applicant and is to be used to alleviate some of the immediate pressure on musicians to meet their household expenses.
