Co-op Local Community Fund

The Co-op Local Community Fund supports projects that help make communities fairer for everyone. You can apply if you’re a not-for profit group, wanting to fund a specific project that benefits your local community.

If your funding application is successful, they’ll work with you for 12 months. The more members that shop with Co-op and choose to support your project, the more funding you will receive.

You can apply if your project:

  • brings people together to access food
  • helps to improve people’s mental wellbeing
  • creates opportunities for young people to be heard and make a difference
  • helps people to save and restore nature or tackle climate change.

Your project must also:

  • take place in the UK or Isle of Man
  • take place or still be running after November 2024.

To apply, your group needs to be:

  • registered or based in the UK
  • have their own bank account
  • operating in your local community
  • not-for-profit.
