Summer Fundraising Appeal

Donate Now

Donate now to fund vital services for people working behind the scenes in Film, TV, and Cinema

Your donation helps support everyone working behind the scenes

Good mental health is vital for the wellbeing of a happy, healthy workforce.

And we know there is still work to do, with only 10% of people who took part in our 2021 survey agreeing that the film, TV, and cinema industry was a mentally healthy place to work. You can access the full report of the Looking Glass report ‘21 here.

A donation today will help fund our services which are a lifeline for so many.

Every donation counts:

  • £30 covers the cost of 12 calls to our free and confidential 24/7 Support Line, signposting vulnerable colleagues to specialist services
  • £50 could contribute to someone struggling to pay their bills, reducing their anxiety and helping them get through another month
  • £100 could fund the cost of 2 counselling sessions to help support someone through the toughest of times


One thing you can do today is to join your industry colleagues and donate – because as a community, we show up and support each other, especially when times are hard. 

We’re the industry’s charity – here for everyone, at any stage of their career, and at any time of day. Your donations will ensure we can continue to provide our mental health and wellbeing services, including: 


Gareth Gatrell

“I’ve been so glad to be supported by the Film and TV Charity. The last two and a half years have been a strange mental health rollercoaster. 2020 for sure was a tough time for all and by the end of it my mental health was the same. I still continue to heal, and I can only hope what happened to me doesn’t happen again. Being bullied is something I would NEVER wish on anyone. I can certainly vouch for the emails and phone calls I continue to have with Justine at the Film and TV Charity. Justine has helped me with the support I needed professionally when I thought that was it for me.” –  Jen Annor – Sound Recordist / Sound Mixer.


We can make life better for everyone working behind the scenes.

Your donations – however big or small – matter. Together, we can make a huge impact on the people who need our help the most.
