Only A Pavement Away supports homeless people, ex-offenders and vulnerable veterans into jobs in hospitality. At the start of the COVID-19 crisis we immediately set up a fund to help bridge the 20% furlough pay gap for any member requiring it as well as offering to support any member facing financial hardship, to help pay rent and living expenses.  We are committed (funds allowing) to continuing to provide this support until the re-opening of the hospitality industry sector.

However, after also seeing a steep rise in enquiries asking the charity to help with providing meals to homeless people across London, and a recent shocking report by The Guardian showing a surge in numbers of hospitality workers forced onto the streets due to job losses, we have set up the Hospitality Against Homeless Campaign. The Campaign aims to bring together the hospitality industry in a focused effort and provide immediate support to our fellow hospitality industry colleagues in crisis with meals, kitchen facilities/equipment and accommodation.

All money raised will go towards supporting both members and non-members of Only A Pavement Away to help them out of destitution following the COVID-19 crisis, and get them back into roles within the hospitality industry.

We are thrilled to have the support of Tom and thank him for helping us raise awareness and funding in support of the Hospitality Against Homeless Campaign and urge everyone who can, to get involved!
