The Ben joins forces with Breathing Space

Free and confidential service for anyone feeling low, stressed or anxious

SCOTTISH licensed trade charity The Ben has joined forces with Breathing Space to bring its free and confidential listening and advice service to the trade.

Breathing Space provides listening and advice for anyone in Scotland who is feeling low, stressed or anxious. It is funded by the Scottish Government’s Mental Health Unit, and operationally managed and delivered by NHS 24.

John Hutchison, president of The Ben, said the partnership aims to help those in the hospitality industry who are struggling with their mental health and wellbeing.

“I’m delighted that The Ben will partner with Breathing Space,” he said.

“At this time when COVID is having such a detrimental impact on the lives of so many people in the hospitality trade, it’s essential that as Scotland’s hospitality charity we support as many people we can by promoting this essential service supporting people’s emotional wellbeing.”
