Building Better Communities

Since 2015, Jewson Building Better Communities has helped over 100 people and projects, and awarded over £800,000 in building materials to good causes.

In 2019, we will be focused on helping these recipients put their prizes in action and making sure their awards benefit as many people as possible. As a result, we will not be running Building Better Communities in 2019.

Building even better communities

Alongside helping our past winners, we will be reviewing how we can better support our customers and the communities in which our branches operate in the future, as well as continuing our work with official charity partner, Barnardo’s.
