Giving back to the community and wider industry is really important to us at Henley Bridge and we’re thrilled to be supporting a range of local and national causes.
The Burnt Chef Project
We're thrilled to be supporting The Burnt Chef Project as our national charity of the year!
Launched in May 2019 The Burnt Chef Project was setup with the sole intention of eradicating mental health stigma within hospitality.
Hospitality staff should be able to discuss the state of their mental health and gain support from their peers and employers. It's important that although mental health can't be seen it is regularly discussed and policies reviewed. This should be the new definition of 'badge of honour'.
Together we can burn away mental health stigma within hospitality once and for all.
Below are some of the amazing support services The Burnt Chef Project offers.
The Burnt Chef academy
Free online training and resource center offering hospitality specific mental health knowledge and training.
