Our friends at Co-op are inviting local groups that benefit communities to apply to be a Co-op Local Community Fund cause. The deadline for applications is 29 May. Successful applicants will partner with Co-op for 12 months and you’ll receive a minimum of £1,000 to support your project. Types of projects that will be considered include those that:
- Bring people together to access food
- Help improve people’s mental wellbeing
- Create opportunities for young people to be heard and make a difference
- Help people protect local biodiversity or tackle climate change by reducing carbon emissions
Groups will help Co-op deliver on its vision of ‘Co-operating for a Fairer World’. Find out more on Co-op’s website. Please note, this funding is not administered by Co-op Foundation, so we’re unable to provide further advice and support on how to apply.
