NABMA Needs your Help with our Support Proposals for Markets

NABMA has, together with other lobbying organisations, been a strong voice to help secure financial lifelines for thousands of our market traders.


Now NABMA needs your help in giving us the information we need to lobby on behalf of all market operators for further government financial assistance, so that markets can be successful relaunched when that time comes.

You will be aware that NABMA is in discussions with government about the urgent requirement for a support package of benefits to recognise the economic and operator impact on markets, present and future, as a result of the pandemic.
As a reminder the NABMA proposal focusses upon five key areas.
  • Supporting Traders and Small Businesses
  • A Business Interruption Compensation Scheme
  • A Market Start Back Scheme
  • Business Rates Discretionary Relief
  • A National Programme to Restore Markets and Market Trading
Government have confirmed that they are looking carefully at the NABMA proposals but require some statistical evidence from NABMA members to help quantify the financial losses, risks and impact.
YOU CAN HELP BY COMPLETING OUR ONLINE SURVEY: Not all questions may be relevant to your market, but please complete as much of the survey as possible. We can then continue to lobby the government on behalf of markets across the UK.
