The Co-op have announced a new funding round to support projects which benefit local communities in the vicinity of Co-op Food Stores and funeral homes across the UK and the Isle of Man.
The Co-op Local Community Fund will fund projects which help local communities come together to help those in need by providing access to essentials such as:
- enabling people to access food and co-operate together to feed everyone
- helping improve people’s mental wellbeing
- offering young people opportunities to develop new skills and make a difference in their community
Preference will be given to organisations with an income of less than £1 million a year.
The fund is open to registered charities, locally-based voluntary and community groups and other not-for-profit organisations.
The closing date for applications is midnight on the 30th May 2021 to submit their applications.
