Hinckley & Rugby Building Society Community Foundation

Our new Community Foundation gives local charities the opportunity to apply for grants of up to £5,000. 

Working in partnership with the Leicestershire & Rutland Community Foundation, the Society’s Community Foundation has been launched as a result of a successful financial year in 2021, presenting the perfect opportunity for us to reinvest our profits back into our communities by supporting various charities across Leicestershire and Warwickshire. 

Each year the Foundation will choose which charities to support based on current social issues. By doing this, we hope to tackle the greatest challenges facing our communities. This year, the charities we have dedicated our help to are focussed around:

  • Poverty and disadvantage
  • The environment
  • Mental and physical health and wellbeing

In 2022, the successful charities chosen for funding were selected by our own staff; Going forward, Society members will be involved in this important decision. 

This year, the Society has pledged its support to the six following charities: 

Based in North West Leicestershire, Hospice Hope provides support to individuals who have been diagnosed with life limiting conditions or a condition which leads to a reduction in quality of life, as well as offering support to partners and carers. 

Provides food and other essential items to people in need in Coalville and surrounding villages in North West Leicestershire. In addition, it also provides support, advice and information to individuals in need to access relevant help to improve their circumstances. 

The Nuneaton-based group addresses the issues of loneliness and social isolation and encourages friendships, independence and social rehabilitation as well as promoting wellbeing. 

The Leicestershire-based trust provides a range of advice services to those who live in the Oadby, Wigston Magna and South Wigston areas of Leicestershire, including debt, housing, employment and family law. 

The leading local independent conservation organisation’s mission is to bring people closer to nature and create a land rich in wildlife by managing nature reserves, engaging with communities on local projects, delivering educational activities, and campaigning on behalf of the environment to protect threatened places and rare species. 

Originally formed as Men in Sheds, the Nuneaton-based group aims to encourage communication around mental health and wellbeing.
