Tesco Bags of Help COVID-19 Communities Fund
Tesco Bags of Help is responding to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis by setting up a new short-term fund to support local communities. The application and payment process has been streamlined in order to respond quickly to the emergency and distribute funds more quickly. A single payment award of £500 will be made to successful applications made by organisations that are supporting vulnerable groups. The programme aims to support organisational need during the crisis rather than fund specific projects.
Priority will be given to organisations whose services have been disrupted, require putting in place new services or facing increased demand due to the Coronavirus crisis.
Applications will be welcomed from a wide range of not-for-profit organisations such as voluntary/community organisations, registered charities, schools, health bodies, Parish/Town councils, social enterprises, Community Interest Companies, community councils, local authorities and social housing organisations.
Applications are welcomed from the following types of organisations:
- Women’s refuges
- Food banks
- Homeless charities
- Charities supporting the elderly
- Charities supporting children’s activities
This is a rolling programme, where eligible community groups or charities can apply for funding at any time during the next few months with awards expected to be made across the UK on a weekly basis.
