The Co-op Local Community Fund utilises money raised by Co-op members in order to help support local projects up and down the UK. Every time a Co-op member makes a purchase, 1% of the amount spent on certain items goes to the local community fund.
New causes are selected every 12 months with a priority to projects run by small, local organisations. Co-op members get to choose where their 1% goes, and any members who do not select a cause will be added to the money raised from shopping bag sales before being shared equally between the causes.
Successful applicants will be paid a share of the funding every 6 months.
Grant amounts vary as they are drawn from the total pot available in the local community – potential applicants can check to see funds available in their region here.
The projects must take place either inside the UK or Isle of Man.
Applications to be one of the causes from 27th October 2019 closes on the 7th of July 2019.
