This is Harvey: a gender fluid, autistic, prodigiously talented musician who was a regular at G-A-Y and Heaven, who performed on many of the UK's leading music stages, playing flute, oboe, piano and organ. Harvey also worked to champion marginalised creatives and queer rights.
Harvey's mental health took a terrible turn one night - and Harvey ended their life just before Christmas 2021.
The Harvey Parker Trust has been created to support the mental health wellbeing of others like Harvey: talented young creatives from under-represented communities in need of emotional or mental health support.
The Trust will raise funds to support wellbeing initiatives and help young creatives to develop the skills to better support their own wellbeing.
We want to send our thanks to everyone who has donated to help set up the Trust on our first JustGiving page. We were deeply grateful to have raised £84,265 from 3387 compassionate donors.
We are also so grateful to all of our friends and supporters for joining us at the Southbank Centre on April 30th 2023 for Love in Mind, the launch of the Harvey Parker Trust. Over 140 wonderful artists performed with a passion and energy that matched that of our lovely audience.
However, our work to support young, marginalised, diverse creatives with mental health challenges has only just begun.
So we ask, please give generously to help us to support those in need of help - as a way to not only celebrate Harvey's life but to keep the memory of our beautiful Harvey alive.
Please continue to support the Trust: donate via JustGiving.
