why
we’re here

Our ambition is to become the leading home improvement company. We believe everyone should have a home they feel good about, so our purpose is to make home improvement accessible for everyone.

Improving ourselves

You’ll find things are changing quickly here. We’ve got lots of exciting ideas in the works. It’s all part of our plan to make home improvement accessible for everyone.

Take a look at how we’re doing just that.

Improving impact

We’re not just a business, we’re a community: four leading brands, and one team, under many roofs.

By working together, we’re making things simpler for our customers: to choose environmentally friendly products, to find value for money, and to support their communities.

We think this makes us a better employer. It makes us a better neighbour. And it makes us a better business. Our surveys show most of our people agree.

Improving communities

A good home isn’t just part of a better life. It’s part of a better world. It’s our responsibility to do things sustainably, conscientiously and with our community in mind.

Today, our people are encouraging customers to save energy, water and money, reconnect with nature and reuse things. And we practise what we preach by running our company responsibly too - by managing sustainable resources, reducing the energy and carbon emissions we use and ensuring all of our suppliers meet our high ethical and environmental standards.

We’re also proud to support countless local community projects, from helping housing charities like Shelter and Foundation Abbe Pierre, to assisting the Red Cross.

This isn’t just good for the planet. It’s good for all of us. It means we can be proud of what we do – and how we do it.

We’re doing everything we can – including providing learning, support, and career opportunities – to build a fair, rewarding and enjoyable place to work. We want to help you be the best you can be. Not just for our customers. Not just for our business. But for you.
