The Theatre Artists Fund has been set up to provide emergency support for theatre workers and freelancers across the UK. It is for theatre professionals who are in need of urgent and critical financial support due to the devastating impact of Covid-19 on the theatre sector.
The Fund has been made possible from a generous donation from Netflix.
Our ambition for the fund is to provide short-term relief for hundreds of theatre workers and freelancers across the UK, and particularly those from underrepresented groups disproportionately affected by the crisis. Please visit the Theatre Artists Fund webpage to apply or donate today.
UK Theatre Members can access Member updates and further guidance in the UK Theatre Members Resources area - please login to view the pages. Theatre professionals who are not members can check the latest updates here.
Please visit the Working safely during Coronavirus page for the latest government guidance on reopening and FAQs; our DCMS Entertainment and Events Working Group page for updates on our advocacy; and the Government Guidance Library with links to all the government schemes and advice for the different parts of the theatre sector.
The Covid-19 crisis has created an unprecedented challenge and many of us are worried about the impact it is having on people's wellbeing and mental health. We have created a new Wellbeing page to provide our members with tools and resources to support themselves and their colleagues and employees.
