    The Co-op Local Community Fund gives money to local causes, helping to bring people together and make a difference. It gives preference to projects run by small, local organisations that make a real difference to people in their community.

    Who can apply?

    Your group could apply for funding if they are looking to deliver a project that:

    • enables people to access food and co-operate together to feed everyone
    • helps improve people’s mental wellbeing
    • offers young people opportunities to develop new skills and make a difference in their community

    Your project must also:

    • take place in the UK or Isle of Man
    • not have religious or political aims (although you can still apply if you’re a religious group)
    • meet the Co-op’s values
    • take place or will still be running after November 2022
    • benefit your local community

    How to apply?

    You must apply by midnight on 30 May 2021. Please visit The Co-op's website to apply for the fund. 

    If you’re successful, the funding period will begin on 24 October 2021.
