Co-op Local Community Fund

Grants are available for small, locally based voluntary and community groups to support projects which benefit local communities around Co-op food stores across the UK or the Isle of Man.

Objectives of Fund

The funding is intended to support organisations that contribute to improving the lives of Co-op members and their communities.

Your project must either:

  • help a local community come together to save, build, fix or improve indoor or outdoor local spaces

  • support the mental or physical health of a community through wellbeing activities

  • help people reach their full potential by developing their skills

No minimum or maximum amount of funding is specified and the funding will be made in two payments: April 2020 and November 2020.


Funding is not available for the following:

  • Solely for the purpose of paying for salaries or the running costs of an organisation.

  • Projects that should legally be carried out by a public authority.

  • Donations to other organisations.
