Co-op Good Causes

Voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations across the UK and Isle of Man can now apply for grants from the Co-op Local Community Fund, which allows Co-op members to support the projects they care most about.

The grants will be awarded for projects around Co-op food stores and funeral homes that:

  • 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.

Funding is determined by Co-op community members who vote on the project they wish to support in their local community. The more Co-op members that support the project and shop at Co-op, the more money groups will receive.

In most areas, this is between £1,000 and £3,000 on average. Successful groups will receive a minimum of £1,000 to support their projects.

Groups can use the postcode checker on the Co-op website to receive an estimation of the average grant size in their area.
