Can Band of Builders help you?

If you have a project in mind where you think Band of Builders could help please get in touch with us today.

Who can apply?

Band of Builders considers 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 people who work or have worked within the construction industry, in the trades or associated to trades. Unfortunately we are unable to consider applications from people who are not able to show a direct occupational link to the construction industry. In order for your application to be considered, please find below our application criteria:

• The applicant has worked in a construction related trade or trade associated to the construction industry for more than 12 months
• The applicant is the spouse/partner or dependent of someone who has worked in a construction related trade or trade associated to the construction industry for more than 12 months
• Has been injured at work or outside work and expected to be unable to work for at least 12 months
• Is suffering from illness that prevents them from working for at least 12 months
• Is suffering a long term life changing or terminal illness

How can we help?

Band of Builders provides relief in particular but not exclusively by coordinating and developing services such as the provision of home modifications and relevant financial support for those who work within the UK construction industry, their families and dependants who are faced with life changing or limiting circumstances such as ill-health or disability.

If you are unsure whether you are eligible for our help, please contact us by emailing

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. 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 currently staffed by volunteers. 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 and can demonstrate that there is a real and specific benefit to the potential beneficiary, please fill in the following form.

This has made a huge difference to us - the extra space means I’ve even got my dining room table back so we can finally eat together as a family again. This really has changed everything.

We’re all so grateful and excited that these guys are travelling from all over the country to help us. We feel blessed. Pippa’s oblivious to it all at the moment but one day she’ll be able to look back and see all the people who went out of their way to help her.
