Ambitions for 2024

We have bold ambitions for our work in this world-beating industry. Together, we want to act as a gamechanger by starting with what individuals need, by creating distinct, evidence-based programmes, by being accessible and relevant and by helping to build a more diverse and inclusive industry.

Our dedicated team aims:

  • For film and TV to be a place where our brilliant and creative industry has 'great work', which contributes positively to the mental health of our people, our industry community, and our businesses.
  • To increase our number of clients tenfold to 4,500 per year
  • To increase the number of people we support to 10,000 per year
  • To build a sustainable fundraising model which supports the charity's growth
