We’re delighted to support our industry charity Hospitality Action in their 180th birthday year!

Hospitality Action is the trade charity offering a crucial lifeline to people of all ages, working and retired, from the hospitality industry. Whether they are approached by a chef, housekeeper, school cook or waiter, Hospitality Action will endeavour to support, whatever the difficulty.

Sometimes all it takes is a very small change in circumstances to tip the balance and turn a manageable situation into an unmanageable one. An extended illness such as cancer can lead to a drop in pay, other circumstances such as a relationship breakdown, bereavement or redundancy can also put a strain on the household budget.
The charity strives to keep their support relevant to the industry and so in addition to their long running grants programme they also offer help via their Employee Assistance Programme, alcohol and drug seminars and a very popular befriending scheme for industry retirees.

In 2016 Hospitality Action spent over £668,000 helping our industry colleagues. 84% were below the age of 60 and 36% were suffering from life changing illness. Hospitality Action receives no government funding and so is dependent on individuals and corporate bodies from within the hospitality industry.
