Charities and organisations in Leicestershire benefitting from bespoke Barratt Community Fund

Leading housebuilder Barratt Developments is celebrating the success of its Community Fund scheme which is strengthening ties with communities in and around Leicestershire. 

The Barratt Developments Community Fund is donating £1,000 each month to a charity or organisation within its operational area, supporting activities carried out in the local area.

Last year, £1.2 million was donated across the company in the UK, but this year the goal is to raise that figure considerably, through work such as the new Barratt Community Fund.

In the past six months, Barratt Homes has supported multiple charities and organisations through their community fund, including: Help the Homeless, Air Ambulance, Adapt, Women’s Aid Leicester, Friends of the Holy Cross and Aspire.

Each of these local charities has benefitted greatly from the £1,000 funding.

Jessica White, Chief Financial Officer for Bardon based Barratt Developments, said:

“We’re delighted with the success of the Community Fund, a scheme which will be able to offer valuable support to those in need within the local areas in which we build.

“As the country’s largest housebuilder we are committed to creating a positive legacy. We want to lead the industry not just in the quality of the homes and developments we build, but also in our work with charities and good causes throughout the UK.”

Barratt Developments PLC has launched the Barratt Community Fund to help strengthen its ties with the local communities within which it operates.

If you are based in the Leicestershire area, are raising money for a worthy cause and are interested in being considered for this funding, please email with your name and contact details, the details of the charity or organisation that would benefit from the funding and reasons why the charity or organisation should be considered.
