Celebrating hospitality heroes

Nominations are open for the inaugural awards to recognize those who go the extra mile to improve mental health in hospitality

The Burnt Chef Project has worked to improve mental health in hospitality since 2019 when Kris Hall launched the organization after personal experience with mental health struggles.

Now, with the launch of the Hospitality’s Mental Health Heroes Awards, started in association with Talent Hive, those who continue to work to reduce the stigma of mental health in foodservice will be recognised in an awards ceremony next year.  

“The Burnt Chef Project was initially set up to help raise awareness of the mental health challenges faced by those in the hospitality industry and eradicate the mental stigma that exists,” explains Hall.

“During this time, we’ve seen hundreds of examples of incredible, selfless and honourable actions taken by those across the sector. As such, it was only right that we looked at a way to celebrate these individuals and businesses in a way that recognised the efforts they make to put wellbeing at the centre of their workplaces. The first Burnt Chef Project Awards, in association with Talent Hive, allow us to do just that. A night of celebration, joy and recognition, which will bring together hundreds of operators, suppliers and industry stakeholders in one place.”

Nominations are now open for the following categories:

  • Best Mental Health in the Workplace Strategy (SME)
  • Best Mental Health in the Workplace Strategy (Large)
  • Most Inspiring Leader
  • Most Inspiring Wellbeing Champion/Peer
  • Unsung Hero
  • Inspirational Story
  • Outstanding Impact in Catering Education
  • Ambassador of the Year Award 2023

The Burnt Chef Project’s Hospitality’s Mental Health Heroes Awards will take place during the Love Hospitality Gala Dinner, on the 25th March 2024, the first evening of HRC 2024, at ExCel London.
