B&Q has joined forces with affordable housing scheme Home to give residents the chance to take practical courses in subjects like flooring and gardening.
The superstore has joined the programme of educational and practical lessons available to people living at the 52,000 properties managed by Home throughout England and Scotland.
A spokesman for B&Q said the partnership would allow Home to benefit from the experience the firm, while they could give back to the community.
All of the courses are free to residents and B&Q also hope their involvement will help residents build their personal and practical skills.
Home has a turnover of £270m and will also offer its residents the opportunity to learn basics maths and English skills.
