We take a stand for LGBT+ inclusion

At IKEA we embrace diversity. In support of this year’s IDAHOTB we will once again be flying the rainbow (LGBT+) flag from all our UK and Ireland stores and units on 17th May, to celebrate diversity and show our support for LGBT+ co-workers, customers and the whole community.

To celebrate and to better support our LGBT+ co-workers and communities across the UK, we have released a limited edition, rainbow version of our iconic blue bag. The sale of these bags will help us contribute and participate in local Pride events and other LGBT+ initiatives.

We invite all IKEA co-workers and customers to show their support for the rights of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities as we continue to press for a fully inclusive work environment and community. That is why we have joined Workplace Pride Foundation and Stonewall, two organisations focused on ensuring greater LGBT+ inclusion in the workplace and wider society. 

Equality is a human right and as a humanistic and values driven company, we will ensure our LGBT+ co-workers have the right to be themselves, be treated fairly and be given equal opportunities, whatever their sexual orientation or gender identity.

  • Workshop with the kids at Barnardo’s

    Barnardo’s Partnership

    The partnership brings together IKEA’s expertise in life at home and Barnardo’s knowledge of children and young people, with the ambition of having a positive impact on the lives of the most vulnerable children and young people in society.

    Launching on National Children’s Day UK, both organisations believe every child deserves a place to call home, a healthy start in life, a quality education and a positive future. Play is essential to the cognitive, physical, social and emotional well-being of children and young people. Through a child-centred approach, IKEA and Barnardo’s will be led by children and young people to understand how they can better support the lives of young carers.

    There are an estimated 800,000 young carers across the UK with one in five doing more than twenty hours of caring per week. With so many adult day-to-day responsibilities from cooking and cleaning to providing emotional support, they often miss out on opportunities that other children have to play and learn.

    Barnardo’s vital front line services can be found within a short distance of every one of IKEA’s 23 stores across the UK, making it easy for store teams to engage directly with local Barnardo’s representatives and young people.

PÅTÅR special edition: Premium 100% Arabica coffee with a purpose

PÅTÅR special edition is a fresh and fruity medium roast made from high quality, single-origin coffee beans with notes of chocolate and vanilla. They are carefully hand-picked and selected in the White Nile region of Uganda, which provides the perfect setting for Arabica coffee plants. But PÅTÅR is also special for other reasons. To help support coffee farmers in Uganda economically, as well as more sustainable farming practices, IKEA has teamed up with a social business project that buys the beans directly from about 13,000 smallholder farmers. This means that while enjoying a cup of our PÅTÅR special edition coffee, you’re contributing to farmers getting better living conditions, and to growing the coffee beans in a responsible way.

PÅTÅR special edition: Hand-picked berries that are building a future

The White Nile region is a mountainous part of Uganda that is blessed with fertile soils and an ideal climate for Arabica coffee plants. This is where we empower local farmers through improved farming techniques and increased business skills. Crop quality rises, demand and livelihoods grow. Taste the result: an extraordinary single-origin coffee with a unique story to tell.

Cotton grown with care

We believe that you shouldn’t have to compromise on price, quality, design, function or sustainability when choosing products for your home. That’s why all our cotton products, like this new quilt cover inspired by the Swedish 1960s called SOMMARASTER, are made from 100% cotton grown with care.

Crocheted. Conscious. Comfy.

Join us on our journey towards using only recycled and/or renewable plastics. OTTERÖN pouffe cover is made out of recycled plastic meaning we consume less new raw materials and lower our environmental footprint. We also used a dyeing technique that needs less dyestuff and water. Use the pouffe to relax in the sun or as a foot stool in front of the TV – it’s light enough to move inside or outside when you need an extra seat.
