Support for you

Let’s find a way forward

Supporting you

Working behind the scenes in film, TV, and cinema can be a lot of fun. The ability to imagine, create and show stories through film, TV and cinema is a truly exciting career. But we know that following your dreams doesn’t come without its challenges.

Every year we support thousands of people in film, TV and cinema to address and overcome personal and professional obstacles. Some have needed to rebuild their confidence, get past a crisis, develop a new skill, or realise a dream project, whilst others have needed more practical support, such as an emergency grant, or access to mental health support.  

Our support and services mean talented people working behind the scenes in the industry, ranging from those working on set to those based in an office, feel like they can continue to fulfil their dreams and succeed.  

Available to everyone working behind the scenes in film, TV, and cinema – from Make-Up Artists to VFX teams, Production Managers and Casting Agents and those Freelancing on a project, through to office workers in sales, finance, marketing, or distribution, our friendly, professional advisors are here to help you.

No problem is too big or too small.
