Concerts for Carers was created to promote the mental health and wellbeing of NHS workers and paid Carers in the UK, in particular, but not exclusively by providing access to free tickets to music events. And to do so on a permanent basis, providing a legacy that endures not only for those who have worked so hard to keep the country safe, but for future beneficiaries in the years to come.
NHS workers and paid Carers put their lives on the line every day for the public during the Covid-19 pandemic. The demands placed on them remain and are amplified by the responsibility they carry and the often-difficult working conditions in which they work. Concerts for Carers will create an opportunity for them to join in a social leisure activity, either with colleagues or with family and friends, that gives respite from stressful jobs and brings all the benefits of music and social interaction.
We will work in partnership with venues from across the UK who will make available free concert tickets that we will then distribute via ballot. Concerts for Carers is a not-for-profit company registered at Companies House (# 12575257) and is registered with the Charity Commission of England and Wales (# 1194916). The charity has 3 trustees; Steve Gotkine, Mark Lambert and Aidan de Brunner, all of whom have backgrounds in the Live Entertainment and Not-for-Profit sectors.
