Who can apply?
Band of Builders consider applications from people in need of assistance who work, or have worked, within the construction industry and trades or associated to construction trades, such as merchants and manufacturers who are allied to trades occupations. We will also accept applications from family members of recipients who work or have worked within the construction industry, in the trades or associated to trades.

We are unable to consider applications from people who are not able to show a direct occupational link to the construction industry.

How can we help?
Band of Builders provide adaptation and renovation projects and can consider helping if you are facing troubles due to disability, illness, unexpected hardship or difficulty, such as the care of dependents. If you are unsure as to whether you are eligible for our assistance, please message us on our social media channels or email us at

How to apply
To be considered for assistance you will be required to fill in a full application form with disclosure of financial and personal information, however we will use the information you submit in this form to assess whether you may be eligible for assistance from Band of Builders.

Please understand that although we are actively seeking projects to help people in need, Band of Builders is a small charitable organisation, staffed by volunteers and is currently not grant assisted. Whilst Band of Builders members give their time and skills free of charge, the funds for materials to deliver our projects are limited, so we have to look very carefully at all applications to ensure that they comply with our charitable objectives and fall within our capacity. Sadly, we are not able to help in all cases.

If you feel that your circumstances fit the criteria set out and can demonstrate that there is a real and specific benefit to the potential beneficiary, please fill in the folllowing form.
