Tesco Offers 60 Little Helps Awards to Support Community Projects

A limited number of one-off grants are available for a wide range of not-for-profit organisations across the UK for projects that will help them make a difference in their communities during 2022.

Tesco Little Helps is a one-off competition provided by Tesco and administered by Groundwork UK. The new campaign is in addition to the Tesco Community Grants scheme, and groups can apply to both.

There is a total funding pot of £300,000. Grants of up to £5,000 are available.

Priority will be given to projects that provide food and support to young people, with examples including.

  • A local school needing support to buy food for a children’s breakfast club.
  • A voluntary organisation working with families to run a food bank.
  • A charity supporting young people with specialist advice to manage mental health.
  • A brownie or scout group needing new camping equipment.
  • Kitchen equipment for a youth project to set up a holiday club
  • Supporting a community centre wanting to put on a celebration lunch or Meals on Wheels service
  • A healthy eating project that supports families to cook healthy meals on a budget

Applications will be accepted from non-profit making constituted groups or organisations with a governing document, including:

  • Voluntary/community organisations
  • Registered charities
  • Social enterprises
  • Industrial Provident Society
  • Community Interest Companies limited by guarantee and running for a minimum of two years
  • Community councils
  • Mutuals
  • Housing organisations.
  • Schools can apply if the grant supports local activities that benefit their community.

Eligible applications will be shortlisted by Tesco and Little Helps to ensure that funding will benefit organisations delivering vital support for local communities.

The deadline for applications is midnight on 6 February 2022.
