Oakwood Solicitors: specialists in claims for stress at work.

Here at Oakwood Solicitors, we have a specialist team of mental health trained lawyers happy to  provide a free assessment of any potential stress at work claim.

In a stress at work claim, compensation is pursued in the County Courts against an employer who has failed in their legal duties to keep their employee mentally safe at work despite being aware that there were risks present causing harm to that employee’s health.

Compensation includes damages for the mental health injury (personal injury) in itself, together with any financial losses such as lost earnings or therapy costs.

The Film and TV Charity has been around since 1924 and today, thanks to the generosity of people and organisations in our vibrant industry, we’re able to offer the hardworking people in film and TV somewhere to turn.

We offer a 24/7 Support Line, as well as access to financial advice and support, help with mental wellbeing, discrimination and harassment, and a whole host of practical tools and resources.

We have dedicated resources to tackle bullying and harassment including our Bullying Advice Service, available for free through our Support Line 0800 054 00 00, Spot, a digital tool which allows users to capture key details, organise their thoughts and keep all of the details in one place, and an Anti-Bullying Directory on our website with a wealth of industry resources:

Anti-Bullying Directory - Film and TV Charity

In 2021 we launched our Let’s Rest campaign because we know people in the film and TV industry are passionate about their craft, but their mental health is too often being strained to breaking point. The campaign is an opportunity to ensure individuals are made aware of the support that’s available and for everyone in the industry, from freelancers to senior leaders, to bring their own commitments to supporting themselves and others. If you are in the industry, or if you aren’t but want to know more about what we have been doing, do get in touch.

Specialising in Healthy Workplace Cultures

Our team of specialists are skilled in supporting business leaders and their teams to understand the value of people in the workplace.

People are the most valuable asset within any business or organisation and without their positive contribution, a business will survive but it will not flourish and thrive unless people are considered to be the ‘beating heart’ in any organisation.  Looking after your people reduces turnover and sickness absence and creates a working environment of high performance impacting positively upon organisation.

We work with businesses to build healthy workplace cultures and enjoy working with any organisation that wants to make a difference through their people.

Delyth Thomas

A new app empowering the UK Film and TV industry to call out bad behaviour.

As the U.K. film and TV industry has boomed in recent years, bullying and harassment in the workplace has become endemic to the sector.

Recently launched, “Call It!” asks the staff of companies and productions three questions every day for the duration of a project, the main one being “How were you treated at work today?” A traffic light system gives users three options to answer, with green indicating they were treated well, orange for “okay” and red for those who felt they were treated badly.

Provide education and training to businesses and schools on the subjects of workplace bullying, Autism awareness and mental health.

Evelyn Field OAM is regarded as an expert on school and workplace bullying and the devastating effects it has on individuals and organizations. She works as practicing psychologist, speaker, author and media consultant. 

She does not believe in always waiting for others to intervene when there is bullying and that we need to develop a social and emotional resilience framework to empower students and employees to take greater responsibility for themselves by developing skills to block bullying behaviours and survive in difficult, stressful environments.

Evelyn wrote Harry the Bully Blocker to empower anyone who feels like a bullied child, learn how to block bullies. It is based on the therapy model Evelyn developed to train psychologists, and help bullied children manage their basic survival instinct more effectively!

Redefining Resolution across all sectors, to reduce the impact of bullying at work.

Since 2001, the TCM group have supported countless organisations in developing person-centred, values- based approaches to workplace conflict. We understand that bullying behaviours are a symptom of dysfunctional conflict, and are best resolved through early, open and honest conversation. We are experts in workplace mediation. We also work to transform overarching policies to facilitate the uptake of early resolution. We provide leaders with the tools to effectively resolve disputes at their earliest stages.

In his latest ground-breaking book, TRANSFORMATIONAL CULTURE: DEVELOP A PEOPLE CENTRED ORGANIZATION FOR IMPROVED PERFORMANCE, David Liddle calls for organizations to adopt a radical new approach to company culture, built on the foundations of fairness, justice, inclusivity, sustainability and high performance.

At a time when organizations are straining every sinew to build back better following some of the most turbulent times in the last 20 years, David Liddle argues that it is not possible to emerge with the old cultural paradigms still in play. Power, profit and process are no longer symbols of a successful organization.
