Survey for self-employed workers in the music sector (May-June 2020)

Are you self-employed and working in the music sector? The ISM wants to hear from you


At the Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM) we know that COVID-19 has caused severe difficulty for many self-employed people in the music sector. We’ve worked hard to influence policymakers and provide resources for our members to help ease this difficulty.

Now we've launched a survey to help us better understand how self-employed people working in the music sector have financially coped since the outbreak began. It’s designed so we can learn more about:

- Those in the music sector who have claimed financial assistance from the Government's Self-Employment Income Support Scheme, your experiences of claiming, the adequacy of the support you have received, and the impact the Support Scheme’s abrupt closure will have on your life.

- Those working in the music sector who are self-employed, but are ineligible for payments through the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme, the reasons why this is so, and how you are otherwise financially coping in these challenging times.

The survey takes less than 15 minutes and it's anonymous. Find out how we'll process your data here.
