About the partnership

Pizza Hut Restaurants have been supporting us since 2016 through its establishments in England, Scotland and Wales. Staff have been involved with some creative fundraising activities, including a 30,000-foot skydive and providing a Christmas lunch for one of our services in England.

Their Charity Champions within the restaurants act as pillars in their communities, raising awareness with their customers and leading fundraising activities with energy and passion. Alongside this, Pizza Hut Restaurants launched an internal wellness programme, providing access to a helpline, offering practical and emotional support 24 hours a day.

August 2016

Announced partnership to their 260+ restaurants across England, Scotland and Wales.

When partnering with a charity, we felt it’s really important that our values and philosophies align. We are very much a ‘front to back’ company - we know that our people are what drive our business, and we have worked hard to craft an environment in which to feel happy and supported. We felt that the Mental Health UK group of charities fitted really well – they are totally focused on the wellbeing of every person they work with.
