Member Spotlight: The Drinks Trust

Read about the various well-being services offered by The Drinks Trust for the hospitality sector.


The Drinks Trust is run by drinks professionals, funded by drinks industry partners, and supported by thousands of drinks industry fundraisers and supporters. Since our foundation in 1886, we’ve provided support, care, and assistance to those who work within the drinks workforce, both past and present.

Since our foundation, The Trust has evolved its support system in order to meet our beneficiaries’ needs. Our aim today is to provide care and support to people who form the drinks hospitality workforce in the UK; past, present and future. The Drinks Trust provides individuals with services across well-being, financial and practical support with a new educational programme and our goal is to improve the lives of our colleagues who receive them.

The Drinks Trust is here to support drinks hospitality industry people in mind and body.
We all aware that the challenges of the past few years have taken their toll on the physical and mental health of many colleagues in our drinks hospitality industry community.
For this reason, over the past years we have launched and established an abundance of services and resources to support our well-being – all completely free to use.

• For those looking to change their relationship with alcohol, we work with Club Soda to bring mindful drinking courses to our industry colleagues.
• There’s a vast amount of research that shows how helpful counselling can be for dealing with the ups and downs of life.
