The success of indies across the UK is vital to stimulating investment and job opportunities, and ensuring that the content we produce is as diverse as our audiences.

Indies that are based in the nations and regions (N&Rs) make up almost 40% of our membership and we have a range of resources and support available to them, as well as a dedicated office in Leeds.

We also lobby Government, regulators and screen agencies, and negotiate with the broadcasters, on key issues which impact our N&Rs Members, such as the N&Rs quotas and Ofcom’s N&Rs qualifying criteria. We are also involved in industry-wide initiatives to ensure that producers across the UK can access local talent for their productions and the business support they need.
