Hospitality Workers Emergency Fund
When we started just a year ago, never did we foresee a situation when millions of hospitality workers on zero-hour contracts faced such a dire & sudden outlook. Millions will struggle to pay their rent, feed themselves or feed their children.
In many EU countries bars & restaurants have closed already and many of these workers have guaranteed hours & governments have stepped up to help businesses continue to pay these workers.
In the UK the majority of hospitality workers are on contracts that mean if their place of work is closed, they will not be paid. Even if we don’t see wholesale closures we will see millions of minimum wage workers lose hours & income forcing them & their families into poverty, debt & potentially homelessness.
The chancellor’s announcement now helps millions of hospitality workers, but sadly still so many are not protected by this as they don’t have contracts, were paid off pay roll or dismissed by employers before the announcement. We decided to take action to help those that are still hurting. We have the technology, contacts & understanding to make a difference quickly.
We have created ‘The Hospitality Workers Emergency Fund’ to allow the kind hearted, altruistic & caring UK public to donate to an emergency fund to help the most vulnerable & in need in our sector during this time. Our mission was always to champion hourly paid tipped workers, we never imagined in this way…
This is a not-for-profit venture powered by TiPJAR in collaboration with Hospitality Action.
Our goal is to raise funds using our platform & Hospitality Action will work 24/7 identifying those who need help the most & giving them a grant of £250. You can donate to support hospitality workers in need in your local city. Every pound will help.
These are our people. this is our cause.
