Our long-term mission

We offer everyone working in film and TV a community to belong, and we want to make work better. Our goals are:

To offer a helping hand

to everyone working behind the scenes. We are building an inclusive industry community that will support you through your career and every day.

To catalyse change

to address the challenges and inequalities faced by the people who are the heart of our industry. We amplify under-represented voices, advocate for better work and take action

Big ambitions… how will we get there?

We believe that the key to successfully meeting these are goals is through a combination of:

  • Direct action to support individuals during times of need, including financial assistance, counselling and advice, and signposting to specialised help
  • Supporting individuals and grassroots organisations dedicated to improving the lives of industry workers
  • Working with organisations across the industry to drive widespread, meaningful change
  • Encouraging everyone in the industry to take part in and champion better, more inclusive working practices.

Let's change our industry for the better
