Since 1908 the Royal Variety Charity (previously the Entertainment Artistes’ Benevolent Fund - EABF), has been quietly helping out behind the scenes to bring essential comfort and support to those who have dedicated their lives to the entertainment of others. For many, the Royal Variety Charity is their only lifeline. We provide support to all members of the entertainment profession regardless of whether they work on stage or screen or in the wings and behind the scenes.
Our public face is Brinsworth House, a dual registered residential and nursing care home in Twickenham. This Grade II listed building is a safe and secure home for up to 36 elderly residents. Our team of dedicated professional nursing staff and qualified care workers provide care and attention 24 hours a day.
In addition, we operate a grants scheme for those who may have fallen on hard times through illness, accident or misfortune. Examples of grants issued include payment of utility bills, supermarket vouchers, purchase of mobility aids and contributions towards home adaptations to support a return to work.
The Royal Variety Charity's largest fundraising event remains the annual Royal Variety Performance, however your donations and legacies are vital to ensure our continuance.
