About the funding

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.
