The new name has been chosen to signpost the all-encompassing support the fund provides to a variety of people from the dance profession. As the two funds always have, it will offer compassion and advice alongside practical assistance.
The charity works with present and former dance professionals in need, including dancers, choreographers and choreologists, as well as dance teachers. Be it illness, injury, financial or personal difficulties, the DPF is there to offer aid.
Dame Monica Mason, chairman of the DPF, says: “This is a significant move forward for us as we celebrate 80 years as a charity. We hope this will encourage even more people to access our services”.
Clemmie Cowl, executive director, added: “Clarity about our mission and aims is very important to us. We have developed our remit as a result of the merger, and believe our new name reflects this change”. For more information, visit dancefund.org.uk.
