The NFRC Bereavement Support Fund

The NFRC Bereavement Support Fund was established to support families of members of the roofing community who have sadly died from Covid-19.

The Fund has grants of up to £2,000, per family, available to the next-of-kin of an employee of a NFRC Trade Member company who has died from Covid-19.

The NFRC Charitable Trust has funding for 100 grants and will allocate this on a first-come, first-served, basis unless the charity can raise further funds.
