About The Drinks Trust
The Drinks Trust is the drinks industry community organisation. Since 1886, The Drinks Trust (formerly The Benevolent) has provided care and support to the people who form the drinks industry workforce, both past and present. Today, we provide vocational, practical, emotional and financial support to those who are currently working, or have worked, in the UK drinks industry.
In 2020, The Drinks Trust provided support to nearly 5,000 beneficiaries through both wellness services and financial aid, delivering over £1.2 million of support, compared to just over £500,000 spent in regular years.
About Hospitality Action
When the first national lockdown began in March 2020, Hospitality Action helped many thousands of hospitality households in financial crisis. Just as in March, today millions of hospitality workers can’t go to work, and many thousands have lost their jobs for good. Since the outbreak of the pandemic Hospitality Action has worked tirelessly to help as many people as possible by providing emergency grants to keep food on the table, to assisting vulnerable industry retirees access local support, and by providing mental health resources for those who have struggled during the crisis.
