Charities we support
Here at Artisan Publishing, we know that since the first lockdown in early 2020 it has been very difficult for the leisure and hospitality industry, and for children and young people, which is why we decided to support the work of Hospitality Action and Childline.
Hospitality Action was established in 1837 and has since offered vital assistance to all who work, or have worked within hospitality in the UK.
They are there for the chefs, waiters, housekeepers and managers; for the concierges, receptionists and kitchen porters, along with sommeliers, bartenders, catering assistants and cooks across the UK. Whether people work in hotels, restaurants, pubs, bars or cafés, schools, hospitals or event venues, Hospitality Action is there to provide help, advice and support whenever times get tough.
Whatever challenge you face – from physical illness or mental health issues to financial difficulty, family problems to addiction – Hospitality Action is there to get you back on your feet again. And when it’s no longer possible to work, they can help you prepare for the next phase of your life.
Childline is there to help anyone under 19 in the UK with any issue they’re going through.
Children and teenagers can talk to Childline about anything, whether it’s something big or small, their trained counsellors are there to support anyone who gets in touch.
All Childline counsellors are volunteers and fully trained to:
- Listen to everyone’s problems
- Know that it takes courage for children to get in touch
- Understand the problems young people can face
- Let every caller take as much time as they need
They counsellors are all different ages and come from diverse different backgrounds, but they all want to really help young people.
