Wellbeing Facilitator Pilot – Grant for Production Companies

 

Would your TV or Film production benefit from having a Wellbeing Facilitator?

What is a Wellbeing Facilitator?

A Wellbeing facilitator is a fully trained impartial individual who can assist the company to meet the legal duty of care of cast and crew, who can advise HOD’s on issues such as bullying, harassment and discrimination,  reduce stress and prevent issues arising from difficult management situations.

CULT Cymru, employers and the Welsh Government have come together with mental health and wellbeing specialists 6ft from the Spotlight CIC to start tackling the problem of poor mental health within the industry by placing wellbeing facilitators (WBFs) on productions. 10 newly trained Wellbeing Facilitators from Wales are ready to be placed on your forthcoming productions!

We want to hear from all production companies including small, local production companies working on scripted or unscripted programmes.  Three models have been developed:

  1. Large or medium sized scripted productions ( e.g WBF – 2-5 days per week)
  2. Smaller sized production/production companies (e.g WBF – 1 day per week)
  3. Subscription Model – Small indies < 10 employees (e.g 1 day per month for 6 months)

Thanks to funding from Creative Wales TV and Film Production Companies can now apply for a grant of up to £15,000 to engage a wellbeing facilitator.
