Burnt Chef Project Hospitality Mental Health Heroes Awards

The Burnt Chef Project has launched an awards ceremony to recognise those individuals and businesses that have gone the extra mile to champion mental health support and reduce the stigma around mental health in the workplace.

Hospitality’s Mental Health Heroes Awards will take place during the Love Hospitality Gala Dinner on 25th March 2024, the first evening of HRC 2024 at ExCel London. They will feature eight categories including Best Mental Health in the Workplace Strategy, Most Inspiring Leader and Ambassador of the Year.

Nominations are being sought from hospitality individuals and businesses that have taken exceptional steps in the past twelve months.

Kris Hall, CEO and founder of The Burnt Chef Project comments: “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. 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 close on 20th January 2024 with a shortlist being announced in early February. To find out more and to nominate an individual or business, visit
