Help. Hope. Opportunity

We offer financial support to those who are considering a change of career, have had an adverse change of circumstances or would like debt or benefits guidance.

Who we help

Our criteria includes professional actors and other performers. We regret that this excludes musicians, students in higher education or amateur performers.

How we can help

We offer educational grants to performers with a minimum of 10 years experience to retrain and re-qualify in a different field, alongside one-off welfare grants for those who find themselves in critical need.
