These are tough times. We know that coping with mental health can be difficult at the best of times, but the added pressure and uncertainty of a global virus outbreak is likely to contribute massively to anxiety and stress levels.

These events would test anybody’s mental health, even if you’ve never experienced issues with mental wellbeing at all before. Let’s face it you are people people so how do you cope when being on the front line is taken away from you, not to mention the financial implications.

We stand strong in this sea of uncertainty, offering support to licensed trade people. In real terms that would mean anyone that works or has worked in bars, pubs, nightclubs, and breweries etc.

Our website and helpline aims to support anyone who’s feeling anxious or worried about the outbreak, as well as those who are finding it hard to cope with staying at home, avoiding public places, and/or having to self-isolate.

We may not be able to keep up with everything as it is moving so fast, but we are reviewing and researching the latest updates regarding benefits and any extraordinary payments that the Government maybe considering offering during this difficult time.

Updates will be published on our COVID-19 web page.
