Do you own a pub or work for a pub company?

We offer a wide range of support for a wide range of issues including mental health, housing, health, money and education.

Our services are available to anyone from the trade, past or present, whether they have been in the trade for 3 days or 30 years and include:

  • Access to our website – including around 60 downloadable help sheets on a range of topics
  • Access to our helpline – available 24/7, 365 days a year. With practical and emotional guidance for a range of issues
  • Immediate access to 6 free counselling sessions if needed
  • Management Line
  • Critical Incident Support
  • Mental Health Training for Managers

We are also able to offer financial support to people who have worked in the trade for 5 years or more and find themselves in need. This could cover costs for everything from new white goods, to help with funeral costs or rent arrears.

Our free support package is like an Employee Assistance Programme

Our biggest challenge is reaching the people who need the help. We’re not asking businesses to do anything other than to let their staff know about us.  Free of charge, we can send you ‘Pub Packs’ for you to make available to your people. Each pack contains a couple of posters and some leaflets to share with the team.

We would be happy to send you a Pub Pack for each of your pubs, just give us a few details below and we’ll be in touch.

We have a brilliant film made with you in mind that shows how licensed trade workers can benefit from our services.
