People across the entertainment industry and all walks of life have been speaking out about sexism, sexual harassment, bullying and discrimination.

Thousands have shared their stories across social media using the hashtags #metoo, #himthough and others.

UK Music takes any allegations extremely seriously and will always offer support and confidentiality to any complainant and do our best to guide them towards the help and advice they need.

We are directing anyone who needs support   towards the Musicians’ Union which has staff on hand to listen and offer help.

Any form of abuse or harassment in the music industry or any other workplace or section of society should never be tolerated.

Help is available at the Musicians’ Union’s Safe Space resource which can respond to individual experiences of harassment.

This resource is open to all in the music business, not just MU members. The MU provides a clear, independent and universally accessible way to raise any personal experiences to experienced responders.

If you work in music and have faced any harassment issues in your workplace, whether you are a musician or working in a music business capacity, you can contact the Musicians’ Union for confidential advice and support.

More information on the help the MU offers is available here or contact for advice or to make a report (anonymously if preferred). No action will be taken on your behalf without your prior consent.
