Dancers' Career Development and Acting for Others

Retraining Grants and Acting for Others Bursaries for Independent Dancers

DCD is a member of Acting for Others, which is made up of 15 individual theatrical charities each with their own remit. The charities offer financial and emotional assistance and support to those in the entertainment profession who have fallen on hard times. The member charities dispense over £2 million to hundreds of people within the profession every year.

During the last two weeks in October, every year, bucket collections are held in theatres across the country. Audiences are asked by performers 'Acting For Others' to assist with fundraising in aid of their less fortunate colleagues.
