May 2022 Deadline for Co-op Local Community Fund
Funding to help communities to come together, co-operate and have a positive impact on community wellbeing.
Voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations across the UK and Isle of Man can now apply for grants from the Co-op Local Community Fund, which allows Co-op members to support the projects they care most about.
During this round, funding is for projects that:
- Enable people to access food and co-operate together to feed everyone.
- Help improve people’s mental wellbeing.
- Offer young people opportunities to develop new skills and make a difference in their community.
- Help people protect local biodiversity or tackle climate change by reducing carbon emissions.
In most communities, grants will be around £1,000 to £3,000, with up to three projects from each community chosen. These projects will be displayed in store and online so Co-op members can choose which project they want to support in their community.
Priority will be given to organisations with an income of less than £1 million a year.
The deadline to apply is midnight on 29 May 2022.
