Covid-19: Help and Advice

We're here for you during the crisis and beyond

We know this is going to be a difficult time for our industry, particularly for workers and freelancers who will be hit by the closure of productions across the UK.

We can offer emotional and financial support, advice from industry experts and a reminder that even if you feel isolated, you’re not alone.

Financial Support 

We try to be there for everyone working behind the scenes. Here’s how we’re helping financially.

COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund

The Film and TV COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund has been created in partnership with the BFI. We’re able to provide one-off grants from £500 to £2,500 to active workers in film, TV and cinema facing significant financial hardship as a result of the Covid-19 crisis. Please note, applications will be assessed based on need, not when we receive them.

Applications will close: 6pm Wednesday 22nd April 2020
