Help me find refuge in music
Every donation you make can help people held in UK immigration detention centres find refuge in music – and bring their music to the world outside.
Give the power of music to people held in UK immigration detention centres
Locked in an immigration detention centre, never knowing when you’ll be removed – or where to – is mental torture. But you can give release through music. Together, we can. Because music is universally loved and has the power to comfort people in the most desperate situations. And we have the expertise to go into UK immigration detention centres and help them make the music that frees their souls and their minds.
Will you be part of the 100 Club?
Making and seeing the real change you can make to people’s lives. It’s what we all want from a charity, isn’t it? That’s why we’d like you to join our 100 Club – 100 people freeing the music of 1,000s of people held behind the walls of UK immigration detention centres each month. And to thank you, we’ll give you a Hear Me Out sustainable badge. It’s perfect for letting others know that you are listening.
Our word to you
The system calls people living in detention “detainees”. We don’t. We call them people. And we treat you, our supporters, as individual people too. We will give you:
The truth. You will always hear directly from people you’re helping and we will be honest about the highs and lows of our work.
Our respect. When you make a gift, you place your trust in us, so it’s always your choice if, when and how you give to Hear Me Out, now and in the future.
A community. With your consent, you will always be the first to hear of new album releases and the stories of the people behind the music.
An open mind. We’re interested in your thoughts about your experience of supporting us. So feel free to ping John an email and he will get back to you

Join a chorus of music-lovers bringing refuge and release to immigration detainees
If you love music, you know the power it has. When you’re held in UK immigration detention with no end in sight, music can be the difference between keeping or losing your sanity. By giving the joy of playing and writing music, you help those taken away find refuge, strength and release. An escape from the daily mental torture of being locked up inside. That’s the power of music.
