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.
BeLonG To Youth Services is a national organisation supporting LGBTI+ young people in Ireland. Working with young people to create a world where they are equal, safe, and valued in the diversity of their identities and experiences.
The TK Maxx and Homesense Foundation’s support will help to increase awareness of LGBTI+ issues through BeLonG's awareness week. Stand Up Awareness Week supports school pupils to take a stand against homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.
In partnership with Enable Ireland, TK Maxx helps support children with disabilities and their families in local communities across Ireland. Since 1997, TK Maxx customers and associates have raised over €3.7 million to support over 20,000 children and young people with disabilities across 15 counties.
Our long-running Give Up Clothes For Good campaign invites customers and associates to donate pre-loved quality fashion and homeware at their local TK Maxx, which are then sold in Enable Ireland shops. The campaign also helps reduce impacts on the environment by keeping clothes in use for longer.
In 2018, our foundation granted over 450 applications to support local charities across Ireland and the UK 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.
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.
