B&Q and Shelter UK establish new partnership

B&Q and Shelter have embarked on an ambitious partnership with the shared belief that everyone in the UK should have a home they feel good about.

The partnership with Shelter, the leading charity tackling poor housing and homelessness, aims to improve the lives of thousands of people through practical DIY and home improvement help, and funding of frontline services.

Through corporate donations and employee fundraising activities, B&Q will fund a team of six specialist Shelter DIY advisers to provide practical home improvement help, and to work with people at risk of losing their home, as well as those settling into a new home following a period of homelessness.

Through B&Q’s support, Shelter has been able to double the number of DIY and skills advisors to now cover London, Birmingham, Bristol, Sheffield and Manchester, along with providing further funding for frontline services around the UK. This can include basic DIY skills such as how to put up blinds or paint walls, as well as help to fit extra security locks.

Home improvement can transform somewhere you simply live, into your home. That is why, as the UK’s leading home improvement retailer, B&Q is delighted to support this important initiative as part of its commitment to making home improvement accessible for all.
