We’re active supporters of new music and involved in many aspects of the music industry.
Supporting new music has always been important to our members. In 1999, we launched an independent charitable foundation that has become the UK’s leading funder of new music across all genres. The PRS for Music Foundation aims to stimulate and support the creation and performance of new music in the UK and motivate public debate about creative music-making through ground-breaking projects such as the New Music Award.

The fund has been helping current and former songwriters and composer members in times of crisis since the 1930s thanks to the generosity of our membership and the public. The fund provides financial help to those unable to work because of illness, accidents or disability and we help those who may find things more difficult as they get older.
