Our cause has never been more important.

For almost two centuries we have been at the heart of how the retail industry cares for, protects and improves the lives of its most valuable asset – its people.

As the charity for those who work in retail, our cause has never been more important. Join us today to create hope, health and happiness for everyone in retail.

Transforming lives for good.

Get involved.

Retail Trust appeal supported by Wagestream

Emergency appeal

Supported by Wagestream. Since March 2020, we have delivered over 11,000 counselling sessions and provided more than £1.2 million in financial aid to our vulnerable colleagues. To enable us to keep on protecting and improving the lives of our retail colleagues, we are calling on every retailer and colleague to come together and support our emergency appeal.
