The DPF understands the many issues that may arise following injury and can offer help during the recovery period and while you are unable to work.
The Fund appreciates that quick diagnosis can be difficult and costly, and also that aftercare is essential in order to attain full fitness. However the Fund may not be able to consider retrospective applications for surgery or treatment.
We provide support with rehabilitation costs in order to help you obtain full fitness before returning to your dance career.
Please note that many of the applicants that come to us for this are first seen by the National Institute of Dance Medicine and Science (NIDMS) and we would strongly recommend that you approach them for advice and support should you become injured. NIDMS can provide you with more information about referral to free NHS clinics.
This year, our programme of work is supported through Acting For Others, working on behalf of the theatrical profession.
