UK Music welcomes moves to help victims of harassment and abuse in the workplace

People across the entertainment industries have recently been speaking out about sexism, sexual harassment, bullying and discrimination suffered in the workplace. Thousands have shared their stories across social media using the hashtags #metoo, #himthough and others.

Representing the music industry, UK Music takes these issues seriously and promotes best practice across all areas of the industry.

UK Music supports and signposts to the Musicians' Union's Safe Space resource for responding to any individual experiences of harassment. This resource is open to all in the music business, not just MU members. MU provide 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 (MU) for confidential advice and support. Contact [email protected] for advice or to make a report (anonymously if preferred). No action will be taken on your behalf without your prior consent.
