The Drinks Trust’s End of Furlough Grant

The furlough scheme ends on the 31st of October and will be replaced by the Job Support Scheme, but unfortunately, this will not be enough to save many workers jobs in our industry. For those who have lost their jobs in the last four months, are going through redundancy or have had their salary significantly reduced, The Drinks Trust is here to help.

Those experiencing immediate financial hardship as a result of the end of the furlough scheme can apply for The Drinks Trust’s End of Furlough Grant of £250 and a range of wellness services with the hope to meet the needs of our colleagues struggling with challenges at this time.

Qualifying individuals will have worked in the drinks industry sector, in any capacity of it, or within the hospitality industry with drinks for 1-year full time or 2 years part-time, at any point in their career.

Ross Carter, The Drinks Trust Chief Executive, said: “We want to reach out to those in the drinks and hospitality industry who have been hard hit, and have gone without the support of others. Industries like ours, the drinks industry, risk being amongst those who go unseen by the public, despite having faced some of the most significant challenges in their careers in recent months

For those facing severe financial hardship, 500 emergency grants of £250 from The Drinks Trust are now available. Depending on demand and ongoing donations to the charity, more may be made available in coming weeks.
