Co-op Local Community Fund - Next Deadline 29th May

Grants are available for small, locally based voluntary and community groups to support projects which benefit local communities around Co-op food stores and funeral homes across the UK.

The funding aims to help communities to come together, co-operate and have a positive impact on community wellbeing – physically and virtually.

Grants are determined by Co-op community members who vote on the project they wish to support in their local community. You can apply if your project:

  • brings people together to access food
  • helps improve people's mental wellbeing
  • creates opportunities for young people to be heard and make a difference
  • helps people protect local biodiversity or tackle climate change by reducing carbon emissions.

The more members that select a project and shop with Co-op, the more funding the project will receive. Applicants are encouraged to promote their project online, on social media and in their community. In most areas, this is between £1,000 and £3,000 on average. Successful groups will receive a minimum of £1,000 to support their projects.

Up to 3 projects in each community will be chosen.

Next deadline: 29th May 2022
