Hello NTW Community,

I have just taken over as Programme Manager for Redhouse Cymru, based in the heart of Merthyr Tydfil. I am currently programming for 2018, and would love to hear from independent artists and companies looking to put on a new show, or existing shows looking to tour.

We also have rehearsal space for hire by shows performing both at Redhouse Cymru and elsewhere.

Please feel free to check out our website, www.redhousecymru.com.

For more information please email me on damian.kerlin@merthyrleisuretrust.co.uk or alternatively you can call the office on 01685 384111.

Grants Available for Actor Parents and their Children 

- support available for the children of actors from birth to graduation

The Actors' Children's Trust (www.actorschildren.org) is in the fortunate position of being able to increase its grants and support a lot more people. We fund actor-parents, where acting has been the main part of your professional career.  Whilst most charities only give grants when you are unable to work, ACT knows that this isn't enough.

A depressing number of actors are forced to quit the profession when they become parents, simply because life becomes impossible. Earnings are too low and too unpredictable to organise and fund regular childcare. 'Free hours' barely exist for actors' unsocial work time. Schedules get changed at the last minute, meaning sudden needs for extra childcare.  ACT is delighted that our childcare grants are helping actor-parents stay in the profession they love.  Some parents welcome a monthly payment (e.g. £100 to £400), while others find a lump sum best at the start of a new job such as a tour.

Applications are processed within a month (or a few days in the case of crisis funding), and support can be one-off or continue for some years. Please help us spread the word about this resource for actor families by telling other actors. Also follows us on Twitter @ActorsChildren

ACT can help you with the following costs:

  • CHILDCARE – top-up grants can help actor-parents attend auditions, take jobs and hopefully stay in the profession.  
  • SCHOOL COSTS – activities including music, sport, drama and dance lessons; uniform and kit, transport, lunches and trips.
  • CRISIS – almost every actor-parent faces times of crisis.  ACT is here for you and aims to give quick, useful, confidential support.
  • SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL / MEDICAL NEEDS – ACT aims not to duplicate state provision but, sometimes, when the statutory services are overwhelmed or unwilling, we are pleased to fund urgent assessments and help families achieve appropriate provision through an Education, Health and Care Plan.
  • STUDENT GRANTS – ACT helps in many other ways, including university, college and apprenticeship grants at 18+.  

ACT does not pay for private education or private tutors.

 

Please do get in touch:  robert@actorschildren.org   020 7636 7868    

We first check eligibility (usually just by looking at your CV if you are on Spotlight) and we usually fund people whose household income is under £40,000.

Hello again.  Just a reminder about NTW TEAM Workout & Skill Swap this Sunday.  If you have a project you want to work on, or are looking for something to get involved in, do come along.  We have a 'City of the Unexpected' theme this time round and it should be a blast!  More information here ...
