Co-op Local Community Fund

Wednesday, 21 June 2017

The next round of the Co-op Local Community Fund has opened. Join the growing list of districts that have made succesful applications to the Co-op!

Every time a member buys Co‑op branded products and services, from buying a loaf of bread to planning a funeral, 1% of their spend goes to a local cause, like one of our districts. For the 6 months a district is part of the fund the money builds up.

Chorlton & Whalley Range District applied for funding to recruit, screen and train new volunteers, deliver outreach activities to attract new children, engage families who are unable to access other informal learning opportunities, and promote co-operative values and principles through their work. Clapham District asked for funds to help pay for hall rents and put towards next year's summer camp.

Hounslow & Twickenham and Ealing & Hammersmith districts have also been succesful in their applications - you can see Ealing's local community fund page at And Clapham's advice for applying to the Co-op is on the Funding Opportunities page of our website.

Applications must be submitted by the 8th August.

Join the Co-op now and raise funds for your district!
