Co-op Local Community Fund

Tuesday, 6 March 2018

Applications for the next round of the Co-op Local Community Fund opened on Monday, 5th March and close on the 8th April.

Each time a Co-op member shops at the Co-op, 1% of the money spent on own brand goods and services goes to the Local Community Fund. All the money raised, plus the income from sales of carrier bags, supports local charities. Each Co-op area chooses three charities to support, so make sure that your group/district is one of those charities.

The application process is short and easy - just a few questions to answer. There are some examples of successful applications at If you would like someone to look over your application, please email a copy to

Once your district is chosen, all you have to do is encourage as many people you know to become a Co-op member, shop in the Co-op and nominate your Woodcraft district as their chosen charity.

Woodcraft districts all over the country have been succesful in previous rounds and have received thousands of pounds.

The Co-op are very keen to support Woodcraft Folk, so submit your application before the 8th April!
