Cosham-based charity receives £5000 grant from the Screwfix Foundation

The Elizabeth Foundation, based in Cosham, is celebrating after receiving £5000 worth of funding from The Screwfix Foundation, the charity which supports not-for-profit organisations in need across the UK to fix, repair, maintain and improve properties and facilities. 

The Elizabeth Foundation supports the early diagnosis of childhood hearing loss and provides outstanding education and welfare services to children aged up to 5 and their families.  

Julie Hughes, CEO of The Elizabeth Foundation, comments: “We are so grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for their wonderful grant toward the refurbishment of our counselling room. 

“Parents of newly identified deaf children need time and space to learn more about their baby’s diagnosis, whilst also learning about technology and communication options available to their child. Our refurbished counselling room will provide parents with a comfortable, safe environment to talk with our team of professionals, learn from other parents, and develop the skills necessary to become strong advocates who can make informed decisions on behalf of the deaf child.”  

Claire Flory, Screwfix Foundation Trustee says: “What The Elizabeth Foundation does is vital for the local community. The much-needed funding used to renovate the counselling room will be key in better supporting the charity’s users. We are delighted to see that our donation has gone towards such an important project, for the benefit of those in need”. 

Set up in 2013 after recognising the need to give back, The Screwfix Foundation has donated over £11m for good causes and helped over 2,400 local registered charities and not for profit organisations across the UK. 

Charities and not for profit organisations with relevant projects are invited to apply online for a share of the funding at
