Community groups across the UK including community councils are being invited to apply for funding for local projects that matter to them. The Tesco Community Grant scheme will award grants to charities and community organisations to fund local good causes whose focus is on supporting children and families.
Funding pots of £500, up to £1000 and up to £1500 will be available for projects and Tesco customers will be able to choose which project receives the most funding by voting in store every time they shop.
The scheme is open to registered charities and not-for-profit organisations, via an on-line application form.
If you are a Tesco customer or colleague, you can also nominate a local project that you’d like to see supported and they will be contacted and if eligible, encouraged to apply.
Originally launched in 2016 as Bags of Help, in Scotland the scheme has supported over 5000 projects with more than £12million in grants since 2016. The programme is available across the UK and is administered by community charity, Groundwork.
