For 2019 the HHH chosen charities are:

Hospitality Action

Hospitality-action-logo-300x246Behind their smiles and slick service hospitality workers can fall upon hard times just like anybody else. Ours is a stressful industry, with long hours, high pressure environments and physically demanding work.

Injuries, mental health problems and addiction are sadly a feature of modern life in the hospitality trade. That’s where Hospitality Action steps in. We work to provide hospitality workers with financial, physical and psychological support to help them overcome adversity and get back to work as quickly as possible. We help individuals and their families stay afloat with grants to cover anything from rent payments to school uniform for their children. And for those who sadly can’t return to the industry they love, we provide ongoing support to transition them to the next stage of their lives.

 For older people who have retired from the industry we provide grants to help with heating bills, home conversions or even funeral costs for loved ones. Just as importantly, we provide a lifeline to prevent loneliness and isolation and our ‘Golden Friends’ enjoy regular contact and local events to help them stay active and connected to their community.

Family Foundation

Family-Foundation-150x150Family Foundation works to provide practical support to families in crisis across the UK. With referrals coming directly from social services teams, this practical support could be anything from providing Christmas gifts to families who cannot afford them, or supplying home essentials such as beds, chairs and soft furnishing to families who would otherwise have no choice but go without.
Family Foundation also collaborates with other charities to support funding for larger projects that offer a lasting impact for families in need. Family Foundation has already enjoyed the support of the hospitality industry, including that of their Corporate Patron, WGC.
