About the Hardship Fund
Backup– The Technical Entertainment Charity is a UK registered charity which provides financial support to entertainment technology industry professionals who are seriously ill or injured or to their surviving family members.
In light of the devastating impact of COVID-19,
Backup created a separate initial Hardship Fund, which will provide limited financial assistance to crew/production personnel, and people working in the technical supply chain across the UK entertainment sector, including those from live events, theatre and TV and film.
Backup Hardship Fund Round 2 has now been completed.
