B&Q Foundation Grants

The funding is intended for registered charities working with people in need (by reason of financial hardship, sickness, disability, other disadvantage or distress) in the UK and who need funding for the following:

  • Projects that provide, maintain, repair or improve housing or community space.
  • Supporting people experiencing poor housing or homelessness.

There are two levels of grants:

  • Up to £5,000 for garden projects
  • Up to £10,000 for building or indoor projects.

The B&Q Foundation will consider awarding higher value grants.

The funding can support decorating, renovating, or creating spaces, both indoors and outdoors, where people can feel at home and have a sense of belonging.

Projects could include creating community gardens, redecorating properties, installing new boilers, and creating new buildings or rooms.

The funding will cover the full cost for the completion of the project, including staff time required.

Projects need to be delivered within six months of receiving the grant.

The guidance notes and FAQs can be found on the B&Q Foundation website.

The application process is managed by Neighbourly.
