1. Help Musicians - Chapter Members / Trustees
 

Help Musicians UK (“HMUK”) is an independent charity that supports musicians from starting out through to retirement.

Although the name Help Musicians UK was only established in 2014, the pedigree of this charity dates back to 1921. After the tragic death of English tenor Gervase Elwes, his friends set up a fund for musicians in his name. In 1930 this became the Musicians Benevolent Fund. In 2014 the name was changed to HMUK to bring the message of to a wider range of musicians and supporters.

HMUK is there to offer support to the following:

  • Emerging professionals to develop their talent and get started in their professional career
  •  Music professionals who hit a crisis in their lives
  • Music professionals with long-term or terminal illness
  • Music professionals[1] in retirement and those needing special help as they grow older.

We are looking to build a diverse yet robust chapter in NI to be fully reflective of today’s music industry.  We are looking for highly motivated individuals who are keen to bring their passion, expertise and networks to the table.

As a new chapter in NI we have a unique opportunity to build an impactful cohort of passionate and driven individuals from a wide spectrum of experience. This will be a wonderful opportunity to contribute to our strategic plan and provide fresh insights and input to inform and guide our work at a local level.

Although the charity currently has an existing board of trustees in England, they are looking to recruit specific Chapter Members in NI to help springboard the organisation’s reach and impact locally.

  •  Finance and Governance
