FUNDING: Co-op Local Community Fund – apply by 29 May 2022

The next round of this fund is open for applications by organisations now.

The Co-op Local Community Fund offers funding of £1,000 to £3,000 to causes local to their shops.

Since 2016, Co-op members have raised over £85m for nearly 30,000 local projects through this fund.

The Fund prioritises projects that improve access to food, improve mental wellbeing, create opportunities for young people and those that help the environment and tackle climate change.

To apply you must be a not for profit group and deliver a project to benefit your local community. If you’re successful, you’ll partner with Co-op for 12 months and Co-op members will be encouraged to support your project. The more members that shop with Co-op, the more money your project will receive in November 2023.

If you have any questions about applying, you can email Maria Nastri, Member Pioneer Twickenham, Teddington and Isleworth.

The closing date to apply is midnight on 29 May 2022.
