Screwfix Foundation Supports Causes that Change People’s Lives Across the UK

The trade retailers Screwfix established the Screwfix Foundation in 2013 to support local projects that improve, repair and maintain homes and community facilities used by those in need in the UK.

More than a decade later, the Foundation continues to offer grants with money raised through staff fundraising and customer donations.

Local registered charities and not-for-profit organisations can apply for grants of up to £5,000 for projects which improve a physical building (or land attached to it) that is used by people in need.

The funding is to be used for the following types of projects:

  • Improved energy efficient lighting and heating.
  • Installation of new kitchen, bathroom etc.
  • Installation of a sensory room.
  • General painting and decorating.
  • Improving safety and security of a building.

Registered charities, Community Benefit Societies, Cooperative Societies and Community Interest Companies can apply as long as they have suitable governance to manage the fund and are supporting people in need whether by reason of financial hardship, sickness, disability or other disadvantage or distress.

There are three more opportunities to submit an application for 2024 funding.

Applications are due by 12 noon on 10 August and 10 November 2024.
