Retailer Support Scheme

Emotional and financial support for the retail sector.

Are you an independent newspaper and magazine retailer or do you work in a newsagents?

Are you struggling with household bills or financial commitments outside your business?

Have you experienced retail crime?

NewstrAid, your charity, has a range of resources to support you, your family and your staff.

If you have experienced a drop in income as a result of unexpected change, disability, bereavement or illness, we may be able to support you with a financial grant.

We cannot help with business-related costs but we can provide emotional and financial support to individuals facing personal debt, family issues, anxiety, problems covering priority bills and much more.

If you are a retailer or you work in a shop selling newspapers and magazines and you are going through a difficult time, our Retailer Support Scheme could provide you with assistance.
