Co-op has launched a new Local Community Fund. A total of £8 million is available to support three community projects for each of the Co-op’s 1,500 food stores and funeral homes in the UK. In particular, the Co-op is looking to support projects led by small, locally based organisations that benefit the local community centred around Co-op food stores and funeral homes; have the greatest possible benefit to their community; and make maximum use of the amount of funding available.
Preference will be given to organisations with annual incomes of less than £1million. The fund is open to applications from registered charities, churches that are an ‘excepted’ charity and scout and guide groups.
The closing date for applications is the 16th December 2016.
