Coronavirus update - 17th March 2020

We wanted to share an update with you about our approach to the current Coronavirus situation.

Our priority is safeguarding the health of our staff and ensuring that we do everything possible to keep everyone as safe as possible. We are following the GovernmentÂ’s advice and are introducing some new ways of working.

We will respond to your enquiry as soon as we can but please bear with us if it takes us a little longer than usual. 

At the present time we are still planning to hold the Trustee meetings as scheduled but this may alter as the situation continues to develop.


Applications for funding normally come from educational establishments with a hospitality department, hospitality related associations, and/or charitable trusts. Read more ...
