Applications for the IKEA Living Local Community Grants are now open.
Helping those in need has always been at the heart of what IKEA do. The IKEA Living Local Community Grants utilise their products, expertise and co-workers to help support non-profit and charity organisations in local areas.
The latest grant saw the IKEA North Lakes team get together to revamp a local women’s shelter.
This makeover helped in creating a warm and welcoming environment to lift the spirits of the families while accommodated in the refuge, allowing them to heal in a nice environment and encourage social connections.
"I would like to say that winning the IKEA grant has really boosted our spirits... The makeover will allow us to provide such a warm, welcoming and relaxing space that the women and children so deserve. It will give them the time to heal in a beautiful space while accessing much needed support to move forward with their lives." Debbie - Service Coordinator at Refuge - Supported Accommodation Uniting Care Community

IKEA will then choose up to three organisations for co-workers and customers to vote for online. The organisation with the highest number of votes will then receive an $8,000 IKEA makeover. The two runners-up will each receive a $1000 IKEA Gift Card. Applications for this round close 19 March 2017 at midnight.
