Since 2017, Shelter, Shelter Scotland, and B&Q have embarked on an ambitious strategic partnership, with the shared belief that everyone should have a home they feel good about.
Thanks to B&Q’s support, we have been able to double the number of DIY Skills Advisers to seven, so we now cover London, Birmingham, Bristol, Sheffield and Manchester. Funds from B&Q have also provided further funding for frontline services around the UK. B&Q colleagues up and down the country have been getting involved in the partnership through fundraising in store and volunteering in Shelter’s network of shops and services. And B&Q staff have also donated stock to our charity shops, and raised money from wood off-cuts collections.
For Christmas 2018, B&Q sold an adorable Festive Fairy doll (with proceeds going to us), and donated gift hampers to our family services across England.
