Welcome to #CheckPlease; our dedicated hub to offer help and support to the hospitality industry through the physical and mental stresses that the festive period brings.

Christmas is often the hardest time for those working in hospitality, so this year we’ve teamed up with Hospitality Action to offer a range of tools and support to help make working at this time that bit more merry!

Our goal is to encourage both employers and consumers to spot signs of stress, be kinder and check that those working in hospitality are OK.

Browse through our online-hub to find out more, and remember, next time you’re out enjoying a lovely roast, pulling crackers and clinking your glasses, think about the stress those serving you may be under, ask for the #CheckPlease!
