Film and TV Charity Launches COVID-19 Recovery Fund

23 September 2020/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

The Film and TV Charity has launched the new COVID-19 Recovery Fund to distribute funding to UK film, TV and cinema workers who have been hit hardest by the coronavirus pandemic, helping to sustain them and their careers through and out of the current crisis.

The new fund will seek to protect the industry’s diverse talent pipeline by focusing on supporting those at greatest personal and professional risk. It will distribute up to £2 million, using funds donated by Amazon Prime Video, BAFTA, Netflix and the BBC, among others.

Support will be targeted at workers who are the worst hit, the least financially resilient, and those who are the most at risk professionally and personally. Grants of £750 a month for up to six months (to a maximum of £4,500) will be provided, supplemented with a package of financial advice, wellbeing support and industry access.

UK residents who work in film, TV or cinema may be eligible to apply. They must have been in paid industry work for at least 40 days in the last 18 months and currently be in financial difficulty due to COVID-19. Applicants must have earned less than £30,420 in the previous financial year (2019/20).

The deadline for applications is Monday 12 October 2020 (17:00 BST).
