On the pages of this website you will find stories from performers around the world who have been helped by IPAT not just to keep performing, but to stay alive.

Groups come to us, or are suggested to us, when they have practically nowhere else to turn. Our organisation enables performers to eat, access medicines and have somewhere safe to live. Some of the groups have now become self-sufficient. Others are in situations that mean – whether for social, political or economic reasons – they will need our aid for the foreseeable future. Please help us to help them.
