Makeover Marathon is a project designed to help families within the UK who live in poverty. The project will involve volunteers from the Giving it Back Community decorating homes for people who can not afford to do so through their own means.

We will aim to decorate 7 rooms in 7 days, putting smiles back onto to the faces of families who are facing adversity. The ​marathon will commence in summer 2017

The families will be identified through a number of different referral routes and will be directly associated with our Facebook page. We invite you to use our contact page to nominate families who you think need this service. We will choose families according to our needs criteria, with those in the most severe need being offered the service first.

We will also be working with paint and home improvement suppliers to obtain the equipment required to make a difference in the lives of the families we support.
