Co-op Local Community Causes
The Co-op Local Community Fund supports projects across the UK that Co-op members care about.
Every time Co-op members buy Co-op branded products, 2p goes to them as a membership reward and the Co-op gives another 2p to support local causes and national community organisations.
Each year local voluntary organisations can apply to be a local Community Cause, and this year the application process opens in May. The applications process will be undertaken through Co-operate, the online community centre, so now is the perfect time to add your organisation to Co-operate.
Co-operate helps people come together to make good things happen. Whether you already run a community group in Northumberland or want help to start one Co-operate is a great place where you can:
- List your group and activities and recruit members and volunteers
- Regularly update your group’s information on Co-operate
- Get ‘How to’ advice and guidance
- Find and connect with other groups and activities in your area to strengthen and widen community networks across Northumberland
Adding your group or activities onto the Co-operate online community centre is really simple, and totally free – here’s the link to get you started: Co-operate. Co-operate is provided for free by the Co-op to support communities.
The deadline for applications is the 30th May 2021, payments are made in April 2022 & November 2022. Info on the fund is available here.
