Burgled homeowners are to get advice and free vouchers from the big DIY sheds in an initiative launched by the Government.
The package is part of wider government action to help increase people's personal security, particularly those who are the most vulnerable to burglary.
As well as ensuring criminals face the consequences of their crimes, according to the beleaguered Home Secretary Jacqui Smith.
The £15m funding includes a free advice pack for people concerned about becoming victims of burglary that provides simple and practical advice on what they can do to prevent it.
It includes discount vouchers for home security products from B&Q and Focus as well as a number of increased policing measures.
Chief executive of B&Q, Euan Sutherland, said: "Everyone should feel safe in their own home.
"This is not about scaremongering, it is about taking sensible precautions, and it needn't be expensive - we have bolts, padlocks and timer switches from as little as £2.
"We are delighted to be able to support the launch of the Government's new resource pack. In the pack you'll find a money off voucher for B&Q's 1,000 home security products, which will enable everyone to get what they need to secure their homes and ensure piece of mind."
Chief executive of Focus DIY, Bill Grimsey, said: "At Focus we have been working closely with leading security product suppliers to improve customer advice both in-store and on the website, including 'A practical guide to securing your home' leaflet.
"We are committed to delivering a Community Support Card valid for three months, which provides a 10% discount to customers who have been burgled, and those who have been identified as 'at-risk'.
"By providing real, practical help we are making it more affordable for customers to protect and secure their homes and reduce the risk of crime."
