At Location HQ we believe in responsible business. We will give a percentage of our profits each year to The Film and TV Charity.
Having worked in the Film industry for over 20 years, the wellbeing of crew is something that is close to our hearts. For this reason, we avidly support the The Film and TV Charity, an organisation committed to the support of Crew Members.
If you work behind the scenes in film, TV or cinema, The Film and TV Charity is here to support you. Whether you’re a researcher or a writer, in casting or production, editing or sales, distribution or exhibition, they’re ready to help.
Every year they help thousands of people in the 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.
From accidents to racism, equipment or anxiety, you can talk to them about any issues or challenges you might be facing. It’s confidential and free to anyone working behind the scenes in film, TV or cinema.
Here are a few words from their splendid team:
“Hello, we are The Film and TV Charity. We help with life behind the scenes.: We’re the charity working behind the scenes of the film, television and cinema 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. When the credits roll and everyone goes home, we’re there, 24/7, helping people to overcome obstacles and reach their potential.
The money raised through your donations will help us to develop programmes to improve mental health support for people who work in our sector and continue to run services like our Film + TV Support Line, a completely free, 24/7 helpline for issues including debt, depression and harassment.”
The support line is a service that offers a lifeline for crew members in need. It is free, confidential and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
