The Royal Society of Musicians works with professional musicians and others professionally active in the world of music, who have been affected by accident, illness, stress and anxiety. We provide vital support to individuals throughout their careers and into retirement and in the last five years have considered nearly 2,000 applications for assistance, distributing grants totalling £2,561,858. Casework sits at the heart of all RSM activities and we are currently finalising a strategy to enable us to increase the number of individuals we support.

RSM has been a membership organisation since its inception in 1738, with one of our founding Members being George Frideric Handel, for whom we were a favourite charity. Today, RSM has over 2,000 Members, all of whom are professionally active in the world of music, or retired. Our Members act as our Ambassadors and play a key role in advising us of colleagues in need.

We are currently looking to develop our membership and increase our communications, to ensure that RSM continues to be a vital resource for the music profession.
