Unison Benevolent Fund’s Counselling & Health Services has received a $50,000 grant from the RBC Foundation to continue investing in the health, longevity, and resilience of the Canadian music community.
As demand for counselling services exponentially increases, the significant infusion of funds into the program will ensure Canadian music-makers continue to receive quality care from Unison in their times of need.
“We’re incredibly grateful to receive support from the RBC Foundation,” says Unison’s Executive Director, Amanda Power. “Music-makers navigate a rewarding, but difficult industry. It’s crucial we have support systems in place to take care of the wellness of our music community. Thanks to the RBC Foundation, music-makers can count on Unison’s Counselling & Health Solutions to provide life-changing mental health support, while also giving our community access to invaluable help through legal guidance, family counselling, assistance with childcare or eldercare resources, nutrition advice, and more.”
“We recognize the importance of mental well-being on a young person’s ability to achieve success,” said Valerie Chort, Vice-President, Corporate Citizenship, RBC, “and are proud to strengthen the critical supports and services provided by Unison – to aid Canadian musicians on their journeys from emerging to established.”
