In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Central England Co-operative’s Community Dividend Fund will provide immediate financial support for charities, community groups, and local good causes suffering financial hardship due to the pandemic.
Grants of between £100 to £5,000 (the average grant is £2,000) are available to employees and members of Central England Co-operative for projects which help local communities deal with the impact of Covid-19.
The aim of the fund will be to reduce the potential for loneliness and feeling of isolation of vulnerable people, ensuring their mental health and wellbeing is maintained. Funding will also provide emergency support such as foodbanks. The Society will consider funding a defined part of a larger project, such as the refurbishment of premises.
The deadline for applications is the 28th February 2021.
