Supporting communities

How Co-op is supporting local communities

We can all do our bit for our community. We’re doubling what goes to local causes and community organisations, when our members shop with us. Join us and make double the impact.

Join Co-op

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

  • Fair Access to Food
  • Fair Access to Mental Wellbeing Support
  • Fair 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.
