We’ve been building the Point One Project over the last three years and there is a lot we know it can achieve. As a starting point, we commit to delivering the following initiatives in phase one:
Invest in existing mental health charities and organisational initiatives
We will invest in existing charities currently operating within the UK music sector as well as organisational initiatives in the field of mental health to support their ongoing efforts and drive forward new initiatives and meaningful and measurable change.
Invest in enhanced support for music managers
Working with the Music Managers Forum, we will invest in mental health practitioners to support music managers in the UK. This will be accompanied by signposts to vital services and support groups, which the Point One Project will also help to invest in.
Invest in enhanced support for the live music community
Working with LIVE, we will invest in meaningful programme and tools aimed at improving the mental health of tour personnel whilst on the road.
Invest in creating a framework for improved health amongst artists and music creators
Working with both the major and independent music sectors, we will seek to deliver a coordinated approach to supporting artists and music creators in the UK at all stages of their career.
Invest seed funding to new mental health businesses
Through the Point One Project, we will invest and act as an incubator to act as an incubator for start-ups with pioneering ideas and programmes, to grow the scale and scope of mental health services in music.
