Who are Dance Professionals Fund?

Dance Professionals Fund aims to support people in the dance world throughout their lives. We are an award-winning UK charity offering financial assistance for individuals during their dance careers and into retirement. We help professional dancers, dance teachers, choreographers and choreologists. It does not matter whether you have worked for a major dance company or as an independent dancer.

We have been in existence for over 80 years, so do read about our history to find out more.

Our staff and trustees have a wide span of knowledge about the dance industry and the requirements of dance professionals.

In order to support those in need we have a range of partnerships that we are proud to work with to help us deliver our mission.

We are members of the Association of Charitable Organisations and One Dance UK.

What are benevolent funds?

Grant-giving charities (also called ‘benevolent funds’) are charities that offer financial support in the form of free, non-repayable grants to individuals, and their families, who need help.

There are hundreds of these benevolent charities across the UK, each there to help different groups.

Find out more about benevolent funds, what they do and how they work in this leaflet by The Association of Charitable Organisations.
