Guidelines of assistance

IPAT funds living expenses or relief of poverty for performing artists based outside the UK in communities experiencing challenging conditions and performing artists who are active in their community.


The International Performers’ Aid Trust is a charity created for the relief of poverty amongst people involved in the performing arts in distress in all parts of the world. Funds are directed toward performers suffering from poverty or distress. The Friends of IPAT program also delivers funds from smaller donations to support artists in insecure locations such as Cambodia or Nigeria.
