Emergency grants of up to £500 are available to a wide range of not-for-profit organisations across the UK.
Tesco has created the new short-term Tesco Bags of Help COVID-19 Communities Fund to support local communities across the UK in response to the coronavirus/COVID-19 crisis. It will support organisational need rather than fund specific projects.
Applications will be accepted from organisations such as women’s refuges, food banks, hospices, homeless charities, charities supporting the elderly, and charities supporting children’s activities. This list is not exhaustive and other organisational types will be considered.

Due to the need to respond quickly to the emergency a streamlined application process and payment process has been set up to make it easier to get funds distributed quickly. Tesco expects to be making weekly awards to groups across the UK.
This is a rolling programme. Applications can be made at any time during the next few months.
