APRA AMCOS is a founding supporter of the New Zealand Music Foundation aka Music Helps

A unique charity, dedicated to changing lives through music

MusicHelps was originally established in 2012 under the name “The New Zealand Music Foundation”. To date they have invested in 66 projects with 42 partners from Whangarei to Invercargill, all using the power of music to change the lives of over 60,000 New Zealanders in need. We’ve also provided emergency assistance to hundreds of kiwi music people experiencing hardship and illness through our Backline suite of services, including a world first professional online, on-the-phone and face-to-face counselling service tailored to people who make live and recorded music possible.

Music Helps support music-based projects that develop our communities and the people in them to achieve their full potential. These projects use music as a binding force for community and whanau groups, often in areas of great economic hardship. They provide opportunities to identify and develop leaders and teach vital life skills such as resilience, organisation and innovation. 

Music Helps also serve those in the NZ music community when crisis strikes. Providing caring, confidential and practical assistance through our Benevolent Fund and our professional wellbeing and counselling service to kiwi music people from all parts of the music industry who are experiencing illness, distress and hardship and have nowhere else to turn.
