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.
With the cold weather setting in, Hospitality Action is once again offering support to hospitality retirees and people of working age who are concerned about their heating bills and how they’ll be able to afford to keep their homes warm through the colder weather.
Who is eligible for help?
The Winter Fuel Grants Programme is open to those currently working within the hospitality industry and earning a low wage or those who are now retired.
Grants are for £100.
To apply, you just need to complete a short three page application form and send in confirmation of your work, liability to pay the household fuel bill, income and savings.
Applications are welcome up until March 31st 2017.
