The Licensed Trade Charity is Supporting Licensed Trade People Through Redundancy

We know that hospitality, especially pubs, bars and breweries, are having to make really difficult decisions at the moment, resulting in people being made redundant.

Our website and helpline 0808 801 0550 continue to be available 24/7 for licensed trade people during this difficult time.

Remember we’re here to help, no pre-conceptions, no judgements, just honest practical advice, emotional support and, for many, financial support.

We want to do everything we can to help licensed trade people get back into employment and to manage on a reduced income until they do.   Our services can still be accessed even after leaving your job.
