Tesco Bags of Help Grants

Community groups, schools and local authorities can now apply at any time for funding from £2,000 to £5,000 to run community projects that deliver physical improvements or activities in outdoor spaces, greenspaces and parks. Community greenspace grants use money raised from the 5p bag charge in Tesco stores in Scotland, England and Wales to support thousands of community projects across the UK.

Each month three local community projects in each region across England, Scotland and Wales will be awarded a grant based on the number votes received in Tesco stores. The project that receives the most votes from all stores in their region will receive a grant of up to £5,000. Projects coming second place receive up to £2,000 and third place up to £1,000.

Support is given to projects that include volunteer training, physical improvements of open spaces, equipment purchases, community events, sports and leisure activities. No match funding is required as bags of help can fund the entire project costs. Projects should promote community participation in the development and use of outdoor spaces and/or deliver a physical environmental improvement to quality for funding.
