Aims/priorities: The B&Q Foundation wants to help local communities shape the spaces that means so much to them. It will provide grants to local charities to support communities with projects to improve homes or a community space. They want to fund projects that support people experiencing bad housing or homelessness, as well as community projects looking to improve their spaces. They provide funding to support people in need, including those suffering financial hardship, sickness, disability, or other disadvantage or distress. The Foundation has awarded its first round of grants to charities across the UK and Ireland, ranging from homelessness and abuse charities, to children’s hospices and rehabilitation centres.
