Support CaRe20 today to help the UK’s shop workers during the Covid-19 pandemic

Retail staff are helping the nation get through the coronavirus crisis but unfortunately, some workers in the sector are experiencing immense difficulty right now.

According to the BRC, 150,000 retail workers have already lost their jobs this year as a result of the pandemic. Many others are being put on unpaid leave or self-isolating themselves or with their families, unable to work.

RWRC – the home of Retail Week and World Retail Congress – has joined forces with retailTRUST and the BRC to launch CaRe20 – Caring for Retail during Covid-19– which aims to raise £10m to provide financial, emotional, physical and vocational support to workers who may be ineligible for government support during the health emergency.

Retailers can help fund the appeal by contacting Claire Greenwood. Individuals can donate to the CaRe20 appeal on JustGiving.

How retailers treat their workers during this pandemic will define their brand for decades to come – join with RWRC, retailTRUST and the BRC to provide much-needed aid and assistance to the industry.
