Welcome to Event Relief 2022!
Hi I am Dan Assor, organiser and host of Event Relief. On Tuesday 29th November I will be hosting a 11-hour virtual event, raising essential funds for three event industry charities EventWell, Make It Blue , and Meeting Needs. Every donation goes towards helping individuals who are experiencing personal and financial hardship. This event, and any size of donation will make a real difference to real people, our event people.
£250 could support three event professionals with a family grocery shop
£500 could provide six sessions of talking therapy for an event professional
£1,000 could provide a hardship relief grant for two event professionals to cover rent, mortgage, or utility arrears
Ways to watch
Where do the donations go?
EventWell is a charitable social enterprise, dedicated to cultivating mental health awareness, with the aim of campaigning, educating and supporting better mental health and wellbeing in the event industry. Pledge by EventWell offers grant giving and financial support to any event professional experiencing personal struggle or hardship.
Make it Blue, a community interest company started by the UK events and entertainment industry, aims to support colleagues (and others) in need, and promote mental health awareness through arts, culture and entertainment projects. They generate funds to support selected charities and creative engagement projects that have a specific focus on mental health and wellbeing.
Meeting Needs is a registered charity founded by leading figures in the UK conference and events Industry. The objective of Meeting Needs is to raise funds for worthy causes relevant to the events industry.
Why does it matter?
Mental health-related illness affects one in three event professionals every year. Mental health services are seeing unprecedented demand and the impact of the cost-of-living crisis is wide-reaching - many people are having to decide whether to heat their homes or buy food, and many are increasingly uncertain whether they will be able to pay their mortgage or rent. This can all have a devastating effect on health and well-being, resulting in mental decline and distress. Every donation goes towards helping individuals who are experiencing personal and financial hardship. This event will make a real difference to real people, our event people.

On the hour, every hour, running from 8am – 7pm GMT, over 50 event professionals will take part in a mixture of fun & informative sessions to raise awareness and donations through creative and imaginative approaches.
