Charities and intermediaries

We regularly work with many charities and intermediaries to provide care and support to people that need our help the most. Below, you can find the links to our financial assistance application form and the guidelines. If you have any questions or you have a client you believe we can help with direct support call us on 01344 898550.

The charity provides support through our website and helpline to anyone that currently works, or has worked, in the Licensed Trade for any length of time. This includes the on trade i.e. pubs, bars, clubs, and the off trade i.e. off licences, breweries and distilleries. Our employment criteria define that we can support anyone that is involved in the manufacture, distribution, selling and serving of alcohol.

For direct support, including financial help, applicants must

  • Have worked in the licensed drinks industry within the UK and Northern Ireland
  • Have worked for five continuous years in the licensed trade.  This period can be made up from full or part time hours and can be from present or past employment.
  • Be dependent children of the above
  • Be spouse or partner of the above
  • Ideally employment in the trade should have been their main job.

If the applicant has worked in other trades for longer than the licensed trade, they should be signposted to other charities or Turn2us for advice.

For more information our applicant eligibility contact our team.

Thank you to all charities and referring agencies for the support you provide to those working in the licensed drinks trade. We are grateful for your contribution in helping us produce specialist support literature and issue-led factsheets

Working together, we bring expertise and specialist guidance to those that work in or have retired from the licensed drinks trade.
