About the Film & Television Charity

We help with life behind the scenes.

We’re the charity working behind the scenes of the film and television industry in the UK. From research to writing, through casting and production, to editing, sales, distribution and exhibition, we support the lives of everyone involved.

The film, TV and cinema sectors are widely admired and crucial to the UK economy, but a culture of long hours, challenging conditions, and an acceptance of a long-held status quo also mean it can be an incredibly tough sector to work in, with the retention of talent an ongoing problem as a result.

To respond to this, the mission of the Film and Television Charity is to jointly develop and provide everyone working in TV and film a community to belong to – making work better.

We will achieve this by improving worker wellbeing across all key groups, ensuring diverse talent is able to remain and progress within the industry and that there is a decrease in people leaving the industry due to wellbeing pressures.

Our delivery objectives are:

  • Mental Wellbeing – To engender a positive sense of wellbeing and the ability to function in life and meet the demands of everyday life
  • Financial Wellbeing – The ability to meet all financial obligations and have secure and stable financial circumstances
  • Social Wellbeing – An equitable and healthy industry where workers and organisations positively connect with each other and provide and access relevant services and resources within a supportive network.

In doing this our aim is to be recognised as the leading industry organisation promoting mental health and wellbeing, financial and professional wellbeing, and helping build a fairer and happier industry for all.


Role Objectives
