Screwfix Foundation Re-opens for Applications
Funding for UK registered charities for projects that fix, repair, maintain and improve properties and community facilities for those in need across the UK.
The Screwfix Foundation, a registered charity, was created by trade retailers Screwfix in 2013.
After being closed for nearly three months, the Foundation is now open for applications from registered charities and not-for-profit organisations across the UK.
To be eligible, applicants must:
- Be helping those in need by reason of financial hardship, sickness, distress or other disadvantages in the UK.
- Be looking for funding to support projects that relate to the repair, maintenance, improvement or construction of homes, community buildings and other buildings.
Grants of up to £5,000 are available for projects that relate to the repair, maintenance, improvement or construction of homes, community buildings and other buildings in deprived areas or for those in need.
This can include repairing run-down buildings and decorating the homes of people living with illness and disability. Projects should be environmentally friendly.
Applications can be made at any time and are reviewed on a quarterly basis. The next review will be in August 2020.
