The Directors Charitable Foundation was born in 2015, the brainchild of members of Directors UK, Stage Directors UK and the Directors Guild Trust, with a welcome push from Piers Haggard OBE. Approved in 2016 as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), the Foundation is led by a Board of Trustees which includes directors from live and recorded media as well as professionals with a broad range of skills and knowledge.

The Aims of the Foundation are simple and clear - they focus on welfare and education, public engagement and the art and craft of directing.

As with all charities, we are constantly growing and changing to fit the needs of those who can benefit from us. We are always happy for Directors and others to have their say in our future direction and to that effect we have designed a short online survey.
