The Barratt Foundation is the new stand-alone body that represents Barratt Developments, including Barratt Homes, David Wilson Homes and Barratt London, across all of its charitable work.
Over recent years Barratt has increased the scope and scale of its charitable giving, and we want to grow it still further. The new Barratt Foundation brings a long term strategy to support charities, national and local, large and small, across the UK leaving a powerful legacy in the communities in which we operate.
The Foundation has a general charitable purpose, which means that it is able to donate to a wide variety of charities within the UK. However, the Foundation will look to provide support in some key areas, particularly through our national partnerships:
- Promoting social inclusion, with a specific focus on young people, the armed forces and the most disadvantaged and excluded in society
- Helping the environment and nature alongside our commitment to being the country’s leading national sustainable housebuilder
- Promoting physical and mental health
- Education and opportunity
Locally Barratt supports charities through its 27 divisional companies with teams raising money for charities and good causes in their areas and close to their hearts. Their fundraising is also matched helping to substantially raise the overall money which goes to the individual charities. The Foundation will continue that work.
The Foundation will also continue to support specific charities addressing individual events such as the Manchester and Westminster terrorist attacks, the Grenfell Tower tragedy and NHS Charities Together.
