Get up to £5,000 match funding for the warm spaces in your community this winter

Co-op and Crowdfunder have teamed up to help community organisations navigate the cost of living crisis to provide vital services this winter with the Co-op Warm Spaces Funding Boost.

Charities and community groups who are already offering a warm space, wanting to increase opening times or extend existing services or activities this winter can apply for the £1million match funding – up to £5,000 per project.

Your project must be a community organisation that welcomes people into a community space in your local area to provide support and needs urgent help this winter to:

  • Maintain vital existing services in the face of rising energy costs
  • Make the community space that you operate from more welcoming
  • Increase opening times and/or extend services.

To be eligible for match funding your organisation must:

  • Be based and have a bank account based in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland
  • Be a not-for-profit constituted organisation, including community groups, schools, registered charities and social enterprises
  • Have a bank account in the name of the organisation
  • Run a crowdfunding campaign this winter, delivered by 31 March 2023
  • Be raising funds for revenue costs only (capital costs such as building refurbishment are not eligible).

Eligible community groups could get up to £5,000 to continue or extend vital services.

This fund will be distributed on a first come first serve basis and applications will close on 28 February 2023.
