Co-Op Local Community Cause

Every year local voluntary organisations can apply to be a Co-op Local Community Cause and three groups are chosen by Co-op colleagues working in your area. Co-op helps local groups raise money for specific projects groups plan which support their community, and staff members choose three groups in their area from those which apply. Every time a Co-op member buys co-op branded goods, 1p in every £1 goes to the member’s chosen cause and an additional 1p in every £1 goes to Co-op’s National Community Fund. Co-op Community groups can raise thousands of pounds towards their projects and last year £15 million was raised to support over 4,500 projects across the country.
The application form requires both the postcode of the applying organisation and one postcode to represent the area the project will serve as these are often very different. For example some of our causes have projects which re-wild overgrown areas, or provide play provision in local parks, so don’t have an office-type address with a postcode in the project area. If you make an application within either area, please choose a postcode as close as possible to you project so we can process your application appropriately.
