Band of Builders
Band of Builders is a registered charity that provides help and support for tradespeople and their families facing adversity due to illness, injury and life-changing circumstances. Registered Charity in England and Wales (no. 1182283).
Band of Builders was born in 2016 when our founder took to social media to ask for help renovating the home of close friend and colleague Keith Ellick who had been diagnosed with terminal cancer. The incredible response from tradespeople across the UK saw the project completed and demonstrated what can be achieved when the industry stands together.
From there, Band of Builders was formed and went on to complete further projects across the UK with the value of TogetherStronger at its core. In 2019 the organisation gained charity status in England and Wales and now works formally to help members of the construction industry and their families across the country in their hour of need.
Since that first project to help Keith, Band of Builders has completed 18 projects ranging from accessible bathrooms, wheelchair ramps, cabins and even complete home renovations. We provide practical support, an online community and a range of initiatives to support members of the construction sector and partner with industry leaders to ensure we can help as many people as possible.
