Our Community

  • Our aim is to help vulnerable children and young people achieve their full potential in our local communities focusing on those facing challenges with health, education and poverty. We do this by partnering with local and national charities.

Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens

Give Up Clothes For Good, our programme with Cancer Research UK, helps transform the items you no longer need into funds for life-saving research into children's and young people’s cancers. Find out how you can help here.


Comic Relief

Since 2005, together with our customers, we’ve raised over £21 million for Comic Relief, which helps vulnerable children here in the UK and the world’s poorest communities.

We have raised funds by selling thousands of Red Nose Day t-shirts and other items designed by fashions icons like Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood, through in-store donations and company fundraising.


T.K.Maxx and Homesense Foundation

In 2018, our foundation granted over 450 applications to support local UK charities that are important to our associates, and support our mission of helping vulnerable children and young people achieve their potential.

Grants have helped children with moderate and severe learning difficulties, children and families who are affected by terminal illness or death of a loved one and more.


Responding to emergencies

The T.K.Maxx and Homesense Foundation is a partner of The British Red Cross’ Disaster Relief Alliance. The fund helps with investigation into ground-breaking global emergency response strategies and has supported emergencies such as the Indonesia Earthquake and Tsunami appeal.

Some of the emergencies we’ve also supported include the London Fire Relief Fund following events at Grenfell Tower, Hurricane Irma Appeal and the UK Solidarity Fund in response to UK terror attacks.
