Equity stands in solidarity with all survivors of sexual assault, harassment and bullying across the four nations. There is still work to be done in our industry and we continue to fight this unacceptable behaviour. We need to continue to work together to make lasting and real change. Our Safe Spaces campaign aims to give Equity members the confidence to challenge and report inappropriate behaviour - find out more about the campaign on our website.
If you have been affected by these issues and would like to speak to someone, Equity members can access free counselling services through the British Association for Performing Arts Medicine. Get in touch with BAPAM to access this service on their website. ArtsMinds also provides people working in the creative industries with mental health support.
You can find contact details for Rape Crisis and the National Bullying Helpline, plus more ways to access support, on our mental health resources pages.
