An exciting new fund for charities building fairer communities of the future

Unrestricted, long-term grants of up to £30,000 a year are available through our Future Communities Fund.

Let’s build communities of the future together. We believe co-operation is at the heart of strong communities and this makes us a different kind of funder.

Our Future Communities Fund will focus on supporting voluntary organisations passionate about helping us achieve our Future Communities Vision, created by young people. This, in turn, will help us deliver on Co-op’s vision of ‘Co-operating for a Fairer World’.

In this first round of funding we’ll look to support organisations building communities that are:

  • Diverse, equitable and inclusive
  • Prioritising youth activism, shared power and transparent governance
  • Our fund will offer unrestricted grants of up to £30,000 per year for up to five years
