Supporting our communities during COVID-19
During this global pandemic, its vital that we give support and thanks to the frontline care workers and key workers in our local communities. Their heroic efforts and dedication have been an inspiration to us all.
B&Q colleagues have been supporting by donating vital PPE equipment to frontline carers, brightening up the gardens of local hospices and care homes with donations of plants and flowers and spreading colour with paint donations to community spaces. Thank you to everyone that is, sharing, caring, curing, and supporting during this time.
Supporting 50 community projects
B&Q is part of local communities across the UK, as well as supporting them during the COVID-19 pandemic, we support the poor housing and homeless charity Shelter at national partnership level and support local charity initiatives.
Last year we teamed up with Neighbourly and supported 50 additional local good home projects. We wanted to support local charities who were providing a home from home or welcoming space for their local community. From helping decorate a hospice, or community centre to creating a new storage area for a foodbank, we will gave our skills, product, funds and time to improve these spaces, supporting our ambition to make home improvement accessible to everyone.
If you are a local charity or community group looking for support, you can register here. Make sure you check out our community reuse page as well. While we’re passionate about supporting local good causes, please do understand we receive many requests and unfortunately, we’re unable to help everyone.
