A meeting place in the heart of the community
We aim to give back to the communities we serve. We are continuously reviewing and improving the wellbeing support we offer our people and have developed strong relationships with organisations such as Fareshare, Shelter and Social Bite to enable us to impact wider communities. In additional we have been working hard to strengthen our Modern Day Slavery policies and practices which has a broader impact across our supply chain.
Bringing people together
It was encouraging to see that the pub was one of the most missed meeting places during the first pandemic-related lockdown and that encourages us to work ever harder to maintain the prominence of pubs and restaurants within the local community and continue to serve as a place to bring people together.
Serving alcohol responsibly has always been at the heart of our business, please download our Alcohol and Social Responsibility Policy.
A sense of community
We are actively looking to enhance the positive impact we can have on local communities, including supporting charities, providing career opportunities, encouraging responsible drinking, and supporting health by enhancing and providing information on the nutritional content of our meals.
This sense of community is ingrained in all aspects of our business, both in our sites and within our central functional teams, and we understand the importance of protecting those communities and the environment around them. We are taking our responsibility in this regard seriously, and have developed a plan, as part of our sustainability strategy, to increase the positive effects we can have on society and the communities we work in and reduce the negative impact our business and operations have on the environment.
Many of our brands support charities which have relevance to their brands and its customers with All Bar One supporting Shelter; Toby Carvery Armed Forces; and Nicholson's the RNLI. Our corporate partners are Shelter and Mind.
Much of our activity has been curtailed by the pandemic. However, we have exciting plans going forward including working with:
- Social Bite - a charity which is a major employer of homeless people as well as the largest provider of freshly made free food in the UK to those in need. We are currently progressing a proposal with them for a Social Bite Academy to train homeless people with hospitality skills as well as looking at how we can help support their Festival of Kindness.
- Shelter - our team members from our four City brands will be taking part in the Sleep Walk for Shelter and All Bar One will be donating 50p from every festive burger sold over the Christmas period to the charity.
Alongside this central and brand-driven activity there are countless outlet-led and individual contributions to the community which take place every day - from sponsorship events to small acts of kindness. These place Mitchells & Butlers, its people and its pubs, bars and restaurants at the core of their communities, both serving and supporting them.
