Who we help

The Benevolent helps anyone who works in any role in the UK drinks industry. We provide practical, emotional and financial support to those who are currently working, or have worked, in the UK drinks industry and now need help. We have no minimum or maximum age requirements and currently support people in a variety of medical and financial situations.

We define the drinks industry as any part of the supply chain including, but not limited to, production, distribution, marketing, import, export and sales of alcohol in both the on trade and off trade of the UK market. In practical terms this means anyone who has worked in pubs, breweries, bars distilleries, off licenses and warehouses or in an office based role at a company producing, distributing or selling primarily alcohol.
