Update - as of 25/03 the scheme is temporarily closed due to the volume of applications, but the charity hopes it will reopen if it is sure there is more capacity in the fund. For more information see https://www.hospitalityaction.org.uk/get-help/
Hospitality workers can apply for a one-off grant of £250 per household to help them at this time of need.
Applicants must be working within the UK hospitality industry or have worked in the industry within the last month. They will also need a full month’s bank statement and evidence from their employer that their job has been ended or their working hours have been reduced.
They must also have savings of less than £1,000 per person or £2,000 for a family or couple. The charity says it does not take into account any income people receive from state benefits.
Anyone looking to submit an application can do so via the charity’s website. Applications will be considered from the 23 March 2020 and the grant scheme will be paid out from the 27 March until funds are exhausted.
