Building Better Communities Returns in 2018 (UK)

Jewson's Building Better Communities programme will reopen for nominations on the 27th March 2018 to support more community building causes across the UK. The Fund awards a Top Regional prize of £50,000 (split equally between labour and building materials costs) and multiple prizes ranging from £500 to £10,000 from a total pot of £250,000. Local Trade Heroes (which seeks to celebrate construction workers who play a big role in their community) can also win £50,000 worth of building materials to enable them to complete worthy projects such as new sports club changing rooms, much-needed play area for children or a facelift for a community building that's seen better days. To participate, entrants must submit all the required details of their nominated community building project via the website below or via Jewson's Facebook page (www.facebook.com/jewsonUK) prior to the closing date which will be announced when the programme re-opens. Interested groups can register now to receive details of the scheme when it opens. Previous winners include Brookfields Special School Independent Living Skills Centre to convert a former caretaker's house in Pangbourne into an independent living skills centre where the pupils can learn vital day to day skills such as cooking and cleaning as well as vocational skills such as gardening, online selling and catering and North Walsham Gymnastics Club - Dream, Believe, Achieve to move from the hall shared with the high school to a purpose built facility to meet local demand.
