About Us

Pilot Light is a campaign focused on changing the way people think and act about mental health through addressing the industry specific contexts and environments found in professional kitchens and the broader hospitality sector.

Founded by professional chefs, Andrew Clarke  and Doug Sanham  in 2018, the campaign is unapologetically bold in its approach to combating mental health stigma and hopes to act as a beacon of support to those affected by common-place issues such as depression and addiction.

The campaign is delivered in partnership with Time to Change. Pilot Light’s voice is stronger and louder thanks to Time to Change, who lend the campaign marketing, PR and administrative support to extend its reach in addition to a wealth of mental health expertise and resources to support the sector and employees working in hospitality.
