Supporting communities

How Co-op is supporting local communities

You can now make double the impact in your community. We’ve doubled what goes to local causes and community organisations when you shop with us, so it’s just that little bit easier to give a helping hand.

We want to build stronger and more resilient communities by offering:

  • Fairer Access to Food
  • Fairer Access to Mental Wellbeing Services
  • Fairer Access to Education & Employment for young people

The funds raised by our members will be split two ways;

  • We’ll continue to support thousands of grassroots community causes through the Local Community Fund, where members can select which cause in their local community to support.
  • And through the new Community Partnerships Fund creating lasting change on big issues we care about, targeting communities that need the extra help the most.
