Co-op Local Community Fund

Deadline: 28th June

Funding for projects which benefit local communities centred around Co-op food stores and funeral homes. The funding aims to help communities to come together, co-operate and have a positive impact on community wellbeing – physically and virtually.

No minimum or maximum amount of funding is specified. Most communities get £4,000 to £6,000 to share between three causes.

The funding will be made in two payments: April 2021 and November 2021.

Who Can Apply

Applications will be accepted from:

  • UK registered charities
  • Scout, Guide or Woodcraft folk groups
  • Registered community amateur sports clubs (CASCs)
  • Churches or chapels that are ‘excepted’ charities
  • Co-operative societies
  • Credit unions
  • Community benefit societies
  • Community interest companies
  • Any other organisation that can prove they are not run for profit

Preference will be given to organisations with an annual income of less than £1 million a year.

This is an annual fund which opens for applications once a year. The funding aims to help communities to come together, co-operate and have a positive impact on community wellbeing – physically and virtually.

To be eligible, projects must address at least one of the following:

  • Bring the community together to help those in need, providing access to life’s essentials such as community spaces, food and bereavement support.
  • Support the mental and physical health of others through community wellbeing activities.
  • Enable people to develop or share their skills to foster community spirit and build resilient communities for the future.
