Dear Levi

It's our final newsletter of the year (and the decade!) so it felt like the appropriate time to look towards the future and share some of the ambitions on our horizon.

Thank you, as always, for your support, whether that's opening this newsletter, sharing your opinions on social, taking part in our carers survey or sending us content for our website - we appreciate it all.

As a thank you we have teamed up with the amazing and always inspiring Pregnant Then Screwed to offer you a discount to attend their next event in London.

We raise a glass and a festive nibble to everyone in our community of colleagues, allies and friends and hope the festive season brings with it some peaceful and restful time for you and your nearest and dearest. Until next year...

The Raising Films team
This year has definitely been a busy one! We got the year off to a start by offering Writer Residencies and brought it to a close with our Making It Possible development days. In between we ran a major piece of research and published our WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT CARING report and as one of our major responses to the results we launched our Raising Films ribbon. We've been delighted to award the ribbon to organisations, productions and companies who are all working to respect and support the working lives of parents and carers.

Next year we'll be publishing an online resource focused on job sharing and we'll continue to partner with and support our allies and wider community. The new year brings a focus on fundraising to continue to offer another round of residencies and more iterations of Making It Possible and we have an ambition to enhance the benefit of being a ribbon awardee.

As ever all our news and developments will be shared here in our newsletter and across our social media channels.
Our final two Raising Films ribbons of 2019 go to...

BECTU Vision in respect to the development and implementation of TakeTwo, a job sharing blueprint for freelancers and the provision of coaching for new job-share pairs and their employers.

Production company Poisson Rouge Pictures build in flexibility around childcare or caring responsibilities as standard. So all meetings are schedule around these responsibilities, while parents and carers on projects in production are offered to adjust their hours, rest days or holidays as required to match their needs. Childcare support is built into production budgets and lobbied for with financing parties. The Poisson Rouge Pictures office environment is child friendly and team leaders and HODs are encouraged to be 'visible' in relation to their caring and parenting responsibilities.

A warm welcome to the Raising Films ribbon family to both our new awardees. Scroll down for news about a previous awardee and how they managed production and a new addition to their family.
