Licensed Trade Charity was established by people in the licensed drinks trade, for those in the trade experiencing personal issues. Today, the charity continues to offer help and guidance and, where necessary, financial assistance to help people working in pubs, bars and breweries, and their families, get back on their feet and on with their lives.

The charity’s support, which includes an informative website and free helpline, covers a wide range of issues from health and housing to employment and education.

The charity also provides a wide range of grants to people who are struggling financially and have worked in the industry for a minimum of five years.
