Criteria for residency

We have various criteria as listed below but encourage you to discuss your situation with us .

  • Applicants or their families must have worked in the UK News Trade..
  • We define the UK news trade as the retailing, wholesaling and distribution side of publishing. This could be working in a newspaper or magazine publisher’s circulation department, working in a wholesale newsagent, a newsagents shop, contract drivers for wholesalers or publishers, newspaper street seller or magazine distribution company. This is by no means an exhaustive list and we encourage you to ask us if your previous employment is within our scope.
  • Applicants must be independent and able to look after yourself, although support visits, such as carers and cleaners, etc are accepted.
  • We are happy to accept people who are in receipt of housing benefit.
  • We are sorry but we are unable to accommodate pets
