About The Film & Television Charity

The Film & Television Charity supports people in the Film and Television industry in the UK at every stage of their career and beyond. The charity’s revitalised mission is to support the wellbeing of all those who help bring stories to our screens, and empowering them to fulfil their personal and professional lives.

The Film & Television Charity does this in three ways: providing financial assistance; through everyday support; and speaking up to shine a light on the under reported issues it sees through its work with individuals. The organisation recently launched the 0800 054 00 00 Film & TV Support Line to provide confidential and independent support on a wide range of needs including: stress, anxiety, mental health, bullying, harassment, financial and legal.

Formerly the Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund, the charity was founded by the industry for the industry in 1924 to help in times of need.

Alex Pumfrey was appointed CEO in October 2017.

HM The Queen is the Patron of the Charity.
