COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on our communities and our economy, with the hospitality industry being one of the hardest hit.
It has also put enormous pressure on our key workers employed in health, education and other essential roles. Yet despite their own challenges, many accommodation providers have come together and stepped up to support critical workers.
If you are a hotelier or host…
…and have implemented new cleaning and safety protocols, or have special offers for critical workers and/or the ability to support local hospitals or homeless shelters, join our initiative here.
All bookings via this site are made directly with you and are entirely commission free.
If you are a key worker…
…or anyone looking for a safe space near where you need to be, trust your local accommodation provider. Most have implemented strongly enhanced COVID-19 cleaning protocols and offer flexible booking options.
A room in a hotel remains a private space, and the deep cleaning measures adopted by most hospitality professionals more than suffice to keep it a safe one too. If you seek further reassurance, you can browse through this website or our partner websites (see below) to find participating accommodation and read about the special COVID-19 measures they have taken to protect you.
By letting these accommodation providers help you, you are helping them too!
If you are the hero who simply needs to travel or isolate in order to maintain your family’s livelihood…
…a B&B, holiday cottage or apartment rental can offer a safe and cost-effective option for you to work away from home, night or day.
In fact, whoever you are… you can still help!
Stays for Heroes has launched a fundraising programme where anyone can donate to help key workers enjoy a break that they so deserve. The idea is simple: you help pay for a UK stay for our heroes and their families. When the time comes, no one will be more in need of a well-earned break!
Every penny raised will be used to fund a night away at a UK B&B, cottage or apartment for a key worker, or for a deserving family via our partner the Family Holiday Association.
So, if you wish to show your gratitude to those vital key workers in health, education, social care, refuse collection, public transport, food production and many more, plus those in the emergency services and Armed Forces, click ‘I want to give’.
Working together and doing all we can is crucial in saving our community and supporting key workers.
We thank you in advance. Please stay safe!

Other accommodation needs?

It seemed wrong that our rooms were empty when they could be used for something to help during the crisis.
The Masons Arms, Odcombe.
Having heard the challenges that people in the delivery chain were having and being in close proximity to a hospital, it seemed only right to get involved.

Useful Government Information
There is a separate Government initiative with its own central booking system for hotels willing to volunteer their accommodation for free to NHS staff. Stays for Heroes is its own platform, meaning that submitting your property with us does not automatically register you into the Government maintained platform. If you wish to volunteer your property to them as well or instead, you can contact them at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
** 100% of the funds donated are given to key workers exclusively to help them purchase a holiday at any of the accommodation listed on this site, or our partner sites, or will be passed to the Family Holiday Association to fund UK breaks for deserving families.
** Business listings on the Stays for Heroes site are 100% commission-FREE and bookings are made directly with the property.
