The Directors Charitable Foundation has been established to benefit directors in all media, the directing profession in general and its supporters amongst the wider public. Our primary charitable aims are:


1. The relief among current and former directors of poverty and other acute needs, for instance due to old age or ill health.


3. The study of the art of direction in all media.


2. Active support for increased diversity in the directing profession, in respect
of class, ethnicity and gender.


4. Promotion of the highest standards in the art of direction in all media.


In addition to our Welfare activities, our Diversity objectives in Aim Two are expressed in our Workshops Scheme, see under Education.

Aims number Three and Four are explored under Craft.
