Co-op Local Community Fund

Aims/priorities: The Co-op Local Community Fund supports projects across the UK that our members care about. From 4 May, 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 under 25 opportunities to develop new skills and make a difference in their community

Who can apply? Voluntary and Community groups. They'll also give priority to local charities and other organisations with an income of less than £1 million a year. They’ll only consider one application per organisation, per giving period (usually 12 months, but it can vary). This means they won't consider multiple applications from the same organisation in a giving period for different local communities.

Grant amount: Not specified. How much you get depends on how much members allocate to you. Every time members buy selected Co-op branded products and services, 2p for every pound spent goes to you if you are chosen by the member.

Application process: Applications can be made via the Co-op Local Community Fund website.
