Industry Friends

With your help we can reach more people, and provide more crucial financial, mental health and legal support

Becoming an Industry Friend

Industry Friends is our membership programme for organisations large or small, that want to help support people who work behind the scenes in the UK film, TV and cinema industries.

Why join?

Show how much you value the people working behind the scenes We’re 100% reliant on voluntary donations to support our work, our Industry Friends are crucial to helping fund everything we do to support our industry, with services such as:

  • The Film and TV Support Line provides a 24/7 listening ear on a huge range of issues and has helped over 8,000 people since it was first launched in 2018. The friendly team is there to signpost to help with debt and money worries, depression and anxiety, bullying and harassment as well as career development.  It also provides fast track access to video counselling, financial and debt advice, and bereavement services.
