B&Q Foundation – Funding for Garden or Building Projects

Active Derbyshire, Active Notts, Funding, News

UK registered charities can apply for one-off grants of up to £5,000 for garden projects or up to £10,000 for building or indoor projects.

The funding is for registered charities working with people most in need because of homelessness, financial hardship, sickness, disability or other disadvantage.

Charities can use the grants to decorate, renovate or create spaces (indoors and outdoors) with the aim of making people feel at home and having 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.

There are three more application windows in 2024.

The second application window opens at 9:30 am on 26 April with a deadline of 17 May 2024.
