Ways to support us
What's so radical about NFN?
Answer? The books we stock & the way we work mean that we are not your average bookshop.
We are ...
- ...a workers' co-operative - The bookshop is owned & managed collectively by the paid workers -
tasks, responsibilities & decision-making are shared.
- ...not for profit - No-one makes money out of the bookshop.
Any profit remains within the business, paying for essential running costs & building up our stock.
(Workers earn equal rates of pay - currently minimum wage.)
- ...committed to social change - We hope that the literature we stock empowers & inspires people to make positive changes to the world -
from challenging the power of corporate capitalism to breaking down prejudiced attitudes to others & ourselves.
Over the years we've supported and promoted many struggles for justice - including anti-apartheid, Troops Out (of Ireland),
the Liverpool Dockers, and currently the Stop the War campaign.
We refuse to stock anything that is oppressive - racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise.
We are registered as a not-for-profit co-operative under the Industrial & Provident Societies Act
