Apex Hotels choose Hospitality Action as official charity partner

Apex Hotels have announced their new charity on Mental Health Awareness Week is Hospitality Action. This year’s theme for MHAW is Movement: Moving more for our mental health, with the Hospitality Action initiative, Walk for Wellbeing, happening in October. This industry-wide 20km fundraising walk has been instrumental in supporting better mental health, raising over £200,000 for Hospitality Action since 2020.

Mark Lewis, Chief Executive, Hospitality Action says, “We are honoured to be nominated as charity of the year by Apex Hotels. This collaboration signifies more than just a charitable donation, it will spread positivity across our industry and in turn, to all those we assist. We’re excited to work alongside the Apex Charity Committee to make the most out of the coming twelve months and to ensure employee wellbeing and fundraising go together hand in hand”.

Michael Musgrave, Head of Charity Committee at Apex Hotels says, “Hospitality Action really aligns with our values here at Apex Hotels. We’ve always done our bit to raise funds for charity and the fact that Hospitality Action gives back to people who work in the industry is important to our teams. We’re excited to be able to support them while they are essentially supporting us as hospitality workers.”

Hospitality Action provides 24/7 advice and support for hospitality professionals, ensuring they can access help whenever they need it. From their telephone helpline to their advice hub covering various topics like mental health, finances, and relationships, they provide the best support to those who need it most.

Apex Hotels now have 21 Mental Health First Aiders (MHFA) as well as seven Mental Health First Aid trainers. The MHFAs have received in-house training and provide support to team members in need equipping them with the skills to recognise signs of crisis and provide initial support, whilst also signposting people to the right level of care and support provided by expert organisations and other healthcare professionals.
