Raising Films carries out industry surveys across a range of concerns affecting parents and/or carers working in the screen sector. The findings revealed through all our research interventions are used to inform, educate, inspire and provoke change.
We work in partnership with key organisations to create surveys and work with academics specialising in research to interrogate the data. The reports we publish bring together quantitative and qualitative data and where possible offer recommendations for industry implementation.
