National Youth Theatre depends on the voluntary support from loyal and generous people and organisations so we can continue to empower young people to take centre stage in their lives. We take the quality of our fundraising standards very seriously. We aim to ensure that everyone who gives to NYT enjoys supporting the world’s first and best youth theatre. We are confident that our standards of fundraising and the methods of fundraising that we employ are professional, respectful and courteous. We do, of course, acknowledge that from time to time we may make a mistake. We are committed to responding and putting things right as soon as we possibly can. If you feel that something is not quite right, please do contact any member of the team who will be happy to help you. If you have a concern about methods of fundraising used or if you have a complaint about fundraising, please contact Richard Wilkinson, Head of Development at or on 020 3696 7055.
When we receive a complaint:
•    We commit to investigating the complaint and advise the complainant in writing of the outcome of the complaint within 28 days
•    We will keep a full record of the complaint and use it to further staff learning
•    If the complaint involves one of our suppliers, we will require them to respond with an outcome
If the complainant is dissatisfied with the outcome of our investigation, they may refer the complaint within 2 months to the Fundraising Regulator.

Read about them

National Youth Theatre is incredibly important at this moment in time because the way my business is going, it’s the prerogative of kids who have got money. It’s very difficult for working class kids to get into the theatre, so National Youth Theatre is very important. It was my way in because we didn’t have money to send me to drama school.
