Raising Films is in the business of making the business better…
Raising Films calls on the film and TV industries to serve its parent and carer members better, to increase their number, and to aspire to the best possible practice, to make it possible for all voices to be heard.
Raising Films works with industry partners and the film and television community to ensure solutions are enacted, by lobbying, providing information, educating and signposting.
Raising Films works with the Film & Television Charity to provide a Family Support Fund.
We Need To Talk About Caring report
This piece of industry research from Raising Films (supported by Carers UK) surveyed people who are working, or who have worked, in the screen industries and who currently have caring responsibilities or have had caring responsibilities in the past.
This is the first investigation into carers working in the UK film and TV industries. It queries the particular impact that caring responsibilities have on those within the workforce, focusing on those who care for people other than dependent children, in particular partners, relatives or children with specific disabilities.
As with Raising Films’ previous interventions Making It Possible and Raising Our Game the findings in the We Need To Talk About Caring report will be used to inform, educate, inspire and provoke change.
The report will be published online at 3.30pm on Thursday 13 June
