About CrewCare

CrewCare is a not for profit organisation established in 2019. Run by a board of trusty volunteers from the live music industry, CrewCare is all about supporting the ‘crew’.

Who are the crew?

Crew are the hard-working folks that turn up long before doors open and who continue to work long after doors have closed. The crew consists of people like backstage working personnel, front-of-house staff, roadies, riggers, lighting technicians, security, promoter reps, venue staff, ushers, drivers, production staff, touring staff, box office and ticketing staff, caterers, set designers and more.

The pressure and demands of the live music industry can be immense for those in the spotlight. What is often forgotten is that it can also be a highly demanding job for live production crew and their families. It is an industry that functions on time constraints,
incredibly tight deadlines, and demanding weather conditions.

Our Core Services

SAFE

Support

Our social support services foster a sense of unity and purpose amongst all crew by providing open channels of communication and holding regular get-togethers and events. We are mindful that partners and family are pivotal to our members' wellbeing and encourage participation as a family unit, whilst also referring support services for family members in times of crisis or need.

Advocacy

CrewCare acknowleges there are already some wellestablished organisations that broadly encompass and represent the live production sector. We have built many valuable relationships with peak industry bodies nationwide and collaborate with them to acheive our goals by bringing greater awareness to the issues presented and encouraging further action.

Fundraising

CrewCare is establishing exciting, alternative avenues to raise funds and assist those in crisis. Our projects and public events not only provide much needed funding, but also lift the profile of crew and highlight their core issues. CrewCare engages live production crew from all age groups and recognises that hosting vocal and successful nationwide events has a broad scope of appeal.

Education

CrewCare acts as an information and educational hub to advance the health & wellbeing of production crew. We collaborate with industry specialists to implement educational programs designed to help crew develop selfawareness & monitor their mental wellbeing and physical health, recognise the warning signs and understand ways to deal with issues that can sometimes arise.
