Help provide specialist health support for everyone in the performing arts

In 2024 BAPAM celebrates 40 years of driving clinical excellence in performing arts medicine.

This milestone marks a significant achievement in BAPAM’s commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of artists, creators and performing arts professionals.

The need for specialist health support in the performing arts is greater than ever. Our unique charity now delivers expert clinical services to over 3000 people each year, and trains thousands more in healthy practice to prevent problems. Our work as clinical partner with a range of industry organisations is driving positive change towards a healthy and sustainable sector that supports and protects those whose talent it is built on.

Now we need your help

We hope to go from strength to strength in our next 40 years as our free service grows to help more people, and we need your support to meet this need.

Giving to BAPAM or organising a fundraising performance, event or challenge for our 40th anniversary enables us to provide free, expert care, support a healthy performing arts culture, and contribute to artistic success and sustainability
