Local Community Fund is for small, locally based VCSE groups to support projects which benefit local communities around Co-op food stores and funeral homes across the UK or the Isle of Man.
The funding aims to:
- Bring people together to access food
- Help to improve people’s mental wellbeing
- Create opportunities for young people to be heard and make a difference
- Help people to save and restore nature or tackle climate change
The money can be used to pay staff salaries or the project’s running costs. For example, payment to a professional to give local children mental health awareness training.
You can find on the Co-op website the restrictions of the fund.
