Equipping people to be self-reliant and achieve their personal best.
The Licensed Trade Charity was formed over two hundred years ago to support those working in the Pub industry who were infirm, suffering from sickness and distress and also to support impoverished Licensed Victuallers in the Education of their children. Whilst the Charity has modernised and widened its remit, its core values remain the same.
In today’s ever changing economic landscape the licensed trade has changed and adapted its service to reflect the demands of today’s market, customers and employees. Unfortunately two hundred years since the formation of the Charity individuals from the Trade continue to fall on difficult times, suffer from health issues and families continue to need specialist Educational support.
The Charity has widened its remit beyond the Pub industry to assist those working in the whole of the licensed trade supporting hundreds of individuals facing a crisis with emotional and financial support through its support and care provision. The charity continues the provision of main stream and specialist Education to both the general public, but also to families from the Trade facing extreme difficulties.

If you would like leaflets or more information to help us spread the word about our new services to colleagues in your organisation, please email email@example.com or call Liz or Chrissy on 01344 884440.
Brandon Lewis MP, minister for community pubs, accompanied one of the Licensed Trade Charity's volunteers in Northampton today to see their work in action. The charity provides support to people working in or retired from pubs and breweries when they are sick or homeless. The volunteers assess people in their homes.
