Support for Theatre Professionals


Theatre Support is a centralised hub of information for anyone working in the theatre industry about how and where you can access help and services.

Ran by Society of London Theatre & UK Theatre, signposting is available for a range of concerns including bullying and harassment, mental health & wellbeing, career issues and financial issues.

If there is a topic that is not included but you think would be useful, please email ukt@soltukt.co.uk and let us know.

Help Musicians

Our Health and Welfare Team offers structured support to professional musicians in times of personal crisis. Our approach is person-centred; building tailored support around an individual’s specific needs. Unfortunately, for obvious reasons, Help Musicians is unable to replace lost earnings. But we are able to provide financial support in cases of significant financial hardship as well as signposting for debt/welfare related issues. We also provide financial assistance for health interventions and access to music specialist health assessments for performance related health issues.
