By donating today, you can start to make a real difference to people working behind the scenes in film, TV, and cinema.

Big or small, every donation helps support the mental health of people in our industry, funds our free, confidential Film and TV Support Line, and provides other resources to help make work better for thousands of people.

For many in our industry, our services are a lifeline – just one of our Stop-Gap Grants can help someone heat their home, put food on their table and keep a roof over their head, while our Support Line provides a listening ear whenever it’s needed. 

You can even make your donation annually – ensuring we can support people across your industry for years to come. 

So, please show your support for the people who make our film, TV, and cinema industry one of the best in the world by donating today. 

How your donation helps


can help someone with travel costs for an interview that could land them their next job


can help someone with legal advice for personal or professional needs


can help with emergency repairs to equipment, preventing someone from losing their job


can pay for a course of counselling sessions for someone who is in real need

I really feel much more empowered and have a better grasp on how to proceed. I think more people need to know about your brilliant services. Thanks for being great!

Where your money goes

Keep the free and confidential Film and TV Support Line running

Our Support Line is a 24/7 listening ear, available to help with a huge range of issues. Our friendly team of advisers are here to help with debt and money worries, support people experiencing poor mental health or bullying and harassment, and provide support with career development. 

Give financial help to those in need 

In the last two years, we’ve been able to give out over £1 million in Stop-Gap Grants, to help with immediate financial needs. 

Offer free access to 2,000+ counselling and legal advice sessions 

From professional problems to personal issues, we’ve helped people overcome some of the most serious situations life can present. 

Support grassroots activity 

We’ve supported individuals and organisations promoting wellbeing, community, peer support, equality, diversity, and inclusion, including anti-racist activity in our sector. 

Remember to Gift Aid it!
