The Directors Charitable Foundation

The Directors Charitable Foundation was formed in 2015 when the three UK organisations which support directors in theatre, film and television joined forces to set up a new charity.

The Foundation draws on the experience and resources of the Directors Guild TrustDirectors UK and Stage Directors UK. A Board comprised of representatives from all three constituent organisations guides the work of the Foundation.

The Directors Charitable Foundation is accepting applications for the Directors Support Scheme.
