ACT- THE ACTORS' CHILDREN TRUST

How ACT helps

ACT give money and informed advice to support the children of professional actors. The money can be for childcare, activities, state school costs, SEND support and when you are in crisis. ACT pays parents directly and confidentially. Grants are free and never have to be paid back.

Who ACT help?

ACT supports the children of professional actors. Only one parent needs to be an actor, the parents needn’t be together, and applications from a non-actor parent are welcomed and considered equally.

Read ACT’s full eligibility policy to see if you are likely to be eligible.

What can ACT help me with?

ACT gives money for a wide range of uses. The grants are freely given to parents, never to be repaid. We can signpost other support, give clear information and help you navigate difficult situations.
