About this scheme

The Roadie Cookbook is a unique collection of 50 recipes, anecdotes and advice from seasoned touring professionals, created during the global pandemic as a way for crew to continue to enjoy meals together in the absence of crew catering. 100% of profits fund invaluable Mental Health First Aid training for freelancers who may otherwise not be able to afford it. 

Music Support are passionate about ensuring that every tour or event has at least one Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) trained individual on board and so are very grateful to the team behind the Roadie Cookbook project for raising funds that give our touring peers the opportunity to apply to attend our MHFA training, accredited by MHFA England, for FREE.

Applicants must be self-employed in a freelance touring role (having worked on at least one tour).

Please contact learning@musicsupport.org to find out more and apply.
