Here to support hospitality

On one amazing day every September, we ask the nation to pull together and celebrate their local businesses and the incredible staff that make things happen.

We need your venues to help spread the word and get involved.

How? Just by doing what you do best: delighting your customers and guests by laying on exciting

Whatever you do, the common aim is for participating businesses to showcase the industry at its best: creative, entertaining, nourishing, engaging, at the hub of our communities, and providing jobs and income for the country.National Hospitality Day is a celebration of our brilliant and resilient sector - and those who work within it!

Only a Pavement Away

Only A Pavement Away was established by hospitality industry consultant, Greg Mangham & his wife Gill, on World Homeless Day, 10th October 2018, to help those facing homelessness, prison leavers and veterans, and employment in the hospitality industry.

Its bespoke hospitality Jobs Board - which is free of charge - has been developed to help streamline and alleviate the burden of the processes that employers go through in employing people who are struggling to reconnect with society. To date, the charity has placed over 375 into work, adding an approximate £10.2 million to the economy through reduced government support, financial independence and household expenditure.

OAPA has ambitious plans in place to support a further 1,000 people - who are either experiencing or at risk of homelessness - into work over the next 5 years.
