What is Pilot Light?
Pilot Light is a campaign designed to change the way people think and act about mental health within the hospitality industry by addressing specific industry-related contexts, attitudes and environments found in professional kitchens and throughout the broader hospitality sector.
Founded by chefs Andrew Clarke and Doug Sanham, 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.
As a global social good company, we are wholly committed to raising awareness and providing support to the thousands in the workforce. By bringing together individuals, restaurants and businesses to work together, we will drive real, direct, effective changes towards making their environment a safe, supported and happy one.
Through fundraising and your help, our plan is to educate, provide valuable content, training, resources, information and develop technologies that will gel the community together. Along with our dedicated teams of mental health advisors, our focus will be on prevention and support for all those that need it.
With the donations received, we will be investing in a number of initiatives that will enrich our industry and make it a better place to work in.
