NPCS is committed to making the scheme as accessible as possible. On this page, we have supplied additional information to support your application process

On this page, you can find large print versions of the FAQs, guidance notes and other important documents to download, below. You can view scalable versions of the Application form and Equality monitoring form on the Apply Now page or listen to audio versions here.

NPCS will make specific funds available to independent producers or writers to pay for a support worker(s) for the application process, if required. Please email us via the Contact us form and we will endeavour to respond within 48 hours.

You may provide your application as video/voice files or filmed BSL, if preferable. Please email us via the Contact us form for information on the submission process.

As part of NPCS’s commitment to equality, equity and diversity, a key number of awards have been reserved for writers currently under-represented in the theatre writing community. If you would like your application to be considered for one of those places, there is an opportunity to state this within the application form.
