CRASH is the construction industry’s charity. It primarily assists homelessness charities and hospices with their construction projects by sourcing, on their behalf, pro-bono or discounted professional expertise and materials from its patron companies and others within the industry. It also awards cash grants which are provided through donations from the construction and property industry.
Assistance is offered in the following three ways:
- Free-of-charge professional expertise, which could include architects, engineers, quantity surveyors or specialists who can advise on the replacement or repair of existing building components such as damp-proofing, roofs or heating systems.
- Sourcing free-of-charge or discounted building materials.
- Cash grants (no minimum or maximum grant levels are listed). Cash grants are only awarded when CRASH’s patron companies are also involved through providing professional expertise and materials.
