Film & TV Charity launches digital financial tool
The Film & TV Charity has launched a new tool on its website to support the industry during the cost-of-living crisis.
The section has been set up in partnership with financial support service MoneyHelper, to assist with financial planning and management, often complex for freelancers.
The tool sits alongside the charity’s existing support functions, such as Stop-Gap Grants, Work and Wellbeing Advice Service, and Mental Health Support accessed through 24/7 Support Line.
The tools include a budget planner, bills prioritiser and savings calculator. to give users a better understanding of how they can manage their money and improve their finances.
The Film and TV Charity’s CEO, Alex Pumfrey, said: “With the cost-of-living crisis and rising energy bills causing grave concern, we want to ensure that everyone in the TV and film industry has access to the best advice and guidance possible.
“Our new financial tools aren’t a magic bullet to the cost-of-living crisis, but they do offer a greater ability to plan and manage finances and ultimately strengthen resilience.”
