The Elliott Fund
The Elliott Fund is available to help young people interested in theatre, but who may need assistance with costs to participate. The keyword is need.
The Fund offers help in the following areas:
- To help with fees for taking part in Trinity Youth Theatre workshops, courses or productions
- To contribute to the costs of auditioning for drama schools, drama degree courses and for membership of the National Youth Theatre
To be eligible you must be facing financial hardship preventing you from taking part. While anyone is free to apply for the bursary fund to help support participation, priority will be given to those:
- In care
- Care leavers
- You/parents/carer in receipt of Income Support, or Universal Credit in place of Income Support, in their own right
- You/parents/carer in receipt of Employment and Support Allowance or Universal Credit and Disability Living or Personal Independence Payments in their own right
- In School Year 3 and above and in receipt of Free School Meals
- Young Carers
- Those currently seeking asylum in the UK
To apply, please complete the short form below. We aim to get back to everyone within 10 working days.
If you have any questions, please contact Jason Lower via email@example.com
All applications are treated with the strictest confidence.
The Elliott Fund was set up to recognise the contribution made by Caroline Elliott MBE and Michael Elliott to the life of Trinity Theatre. The couple were involved in every aspect of Trinity from the outset in the 1970s. Both were trustees of the theatre, and Caroline was the Box Office Manager for over thirty years. Caroline sadly passed away in 2016, and Michael in 2019. The Fund continues in their memory.
The Fund began with a grant from Coutts Bank and its income has been supplemented by contributions from the Elliott family, audience collections and donations from local community groups.
