The safety of our customers and colleagues is our number one priority.
We have implemented wide-ranging safety measures, in line with government guidance, across our estate so we can continue to provide a service that keeps our customers and colleagues safe.
In our 730+ stores wearing a face covering is no longer mandatory and is your personal choice. Hand sanitizer remains available for your use.
For Our Colleague Wellness
The wellness of our colleagues is paramount. Our wellness pages are available to all Screwfix colleagues and have been updated during the Covid-19 crisis to ensure we can offer them the support they need. The pages offer a wide range of support from mental health to managing finances and we ask all colleagues to speak with their line manager if they have any concerns.
For the NHS and Care Community
We recognised the importance and demand for PPE and have taken the opportunity during the pandemic to support the NHS by ringfenceing PPE to donate to the NHS for distribution in hospitals, hospices, and care homes.
In the UK and alongside B&Q, we have donated over £500,000 worth of PPE to the NHS. We have worked closely with the NHS to donate these supplies to the hospitals and Key Workers where it is most needed.
We are delighted to have been able to support them in keeping Key Workers safe.
For The Screwfix Foundation
Thanks to Screwfix customers and colleagues, The Screwfix Foundation has awarded over £1m in grants to charities across the UK during the Covid-19 crisis.
The Screwfix Foundation has awarded more than 200 charities Papworth Trust, Save the Family and Don’t Lose Hope with grants of up to £5k. These donations will enable charities to fix, repair, maintain and improve their facilities at a time when many have been unable to carry out their own fundraising activities.
The Screwfix Foundation also awarded £50k to Helen & Douglas House, a charity that provides hospice care for babies and children in Oxfordshire and the surrounding counties. Rising Sun Domestic Violence & Abuse service, a charity in Kent that addresses domestic violence and provides services for adults, children and families will also receive £52k to help support those In need.
As well as supporting local charities, The Screwfix Foundation awarded £100k to National Partner, MacMillan.
Many of our customers play a critical role in keeping homes warm, safe and with power and we are continuing to adapt our proposition in line with Government advice to ensure we can give our customers access to the products they need.
We would like to thank you for your continued support and understanding during this time.
