Supporting Small Business During Lockdown

What We Do

Lending a Helping Hand

Adopt-a-Shop aims to connect small hospitality and retail businesses struggling during enforced Covid-19 lockdowns with people or businesses who are still prospering, to provide emergency lockdown financial support aimed at helping the struggling business get through the lockdown.

If you are being financially affected during a lockdown and cannot meet your immediate financial obligations, please contact us and we will try to connect you with a business who may be able to assist immediately.

We are strictly not-for-profit and all our staff are volunteers. We are not able to guarantee help, but will do our best to facilitate this.

How We Help

If you are a small retail or hospitality business (or other small business) who is impacted by the lockdown, register with Adopt-a-Shop and we will match you with a person or business, to help you in any way they can. Help may be in the form of assistance with rent, payment of fixed expenses or another immediate financial need.

Please note the assistance provided is for immediate expenses not able to be met as a direct result of being in lockdown, not for small businesses looking to grow.

If you are a business who has not been affected by the lockdowns, here is your chance to help a fellow business owner. Help needs to be in the form of some kind of financial support, the degree of which is agreed to between the businesses. We will ask you how much you can afford and attempt to match you with a business seeking a similar level of support. All levels of support will be gratefully received and kept confidential.
