Bags of Help Grants Scheme

Grants of up to £5k are available every month to fund local projects.

Groups across the UK are being encouraged to apply now for a grant for local community projects, thanks to funding from Tesco’s ‘Bags of Help’ scheme.
‘Bags of Help’, a grants scheme funded by Tesco customers through the 5p carrier charge and administered by Groundwork, provides grants of £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 for projects that use or provide access to outdoor spaces in communities.

Grants are available for all manner of groups including voluntary or community organisations (including registered charities/companies), schools, health bodies (e.g. CCG, NHS Hospital Trust, Foundation Trust), Parish/Town Councils, local authorities and social housing providers.

Since October 2016, the scheme has awarded £24million to communities across England, Wales and Scotland.

Go to the Groundwork website for more information and to apply.
