NFRN members, who are currently undergoing significant financial distress due to the coronavirus pandemic, can claim for the Covid-19 Hardship Fund multiple times up to the sum of £2,000.

Our Covid-19 Hardship Fund was launched in April to alleviate some of the financial pressures that independent retailers may be facing due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Thanks to generous donations from the Federation’s branches, districts, individual members, and suppliers and publishers, the fund has reached an impressive total of £241,621.

Since its launch at the height of this year’s first national lockdown, £119,400 has been paid out to cash-strapped members.

Members can apply via the NFRN’s website,

Supporting information must also be provided. Please be aware that claims cannot be processed without the correct documentation.
