The Local Impact fund is to support those smaller local initiatives to help you support your community.
Examples of the Local Impact Guidelines/Criteria:
Community - This is about supporting your local community, bringing people together, supporting events which will benefit the wider community or supporting local groups with events/initiatives which will have an impact locally.
Elderly - The Foundation not only wants to focus on the elderly at Christmas as loneliness and isolation is something that affects people throughout the year.
Sporting Activities - Sport and physical activity is not only extremely beneficial for young people’s health but their personal growth, learning of teamwork and other valuable skills. Therefore investing in grass roots sport for young people plays a valuable role and strengthens community cohesion.
There so many local football, rugby, cricket, netball, dance clubs to name a few across the UK with these groups being managed by committed volunteers and funded by parents. One of the most requested areas of support the Foundation receives is around funding/support for these local groups.
Christmas - Christmas is a special time of the year however; it can in some cases be an exceptionally lonely time. The Asda Foundation would like to bring people together who might otherwise not be able to do so, combatting loneliness, dealing with disability or other similar needs.
To apply, please contact the Community Champion in your local store.
