These grants cover:

  • Rehabilitation costs (following injury) are the main grants provided by this Fund. Examples of this might be the cost of some physiotherapy sessions.

The fund is only able to support the cost of surgery or other treatment requiring hospitalisation in extreme circumstances. Complementary and alternative medicine will not normally be considered for funding.

If you require medical advice following injury whilst performing, and do not have the funds to pay for it, or are on a long NHS waiting list, we suggest you contact NIDMS or BAPAMBAPAM is currently offering online consultations to performers.

Read the full guidelines about medical costs grants.

Some of our injury grants this year are provided through a kind legacy donation from our late Patron, Dame Beryl Grey and a donation from Acting For Others.

Please see our Frequently Asked Questions for further information about who and how the fund can help.
