The Film and Television Charity support line will offer confidential and independent support to those working in film and TV, 24/7 and is free at the point of contact.
Ours is a wonderful, world-beating industry where people love their work – but we also know that it can be tough and lonely, with a strong sense that you are on your own. The Line will provide support for a wide range of needs including stress, anxiety, health, mental health, and financial and legal concerns. Whilst we expect that many will simply want a listening ear, we will also offer counselling, money and debt advice, legal advice and financial assistance where appropriate. We hope anyone from any area or role, with issues big or small, will get in touch.
The service is run by professionally trained staff with expertise and experience in supporting multiple personal and professional difficulties and is delivered by Connect Assist, a social business with over 10 years’ experience of providing dedicated helplines to charity, third sector and public sector organisations. The Film and Television Charity are also working to ensure that those answering calls really understand our industry, and its working patterns.
Assistance will also be available via telephone: 0800 054 00 00
