HOW TO APPLY
First check the funding is available in your area:
- Go to: https://membership.coop.co.uk/causes/search
- You might need to log in, each for your postcode
- Hopefully you will see groups local to you who have received funding, and how much they got. If you do its probably worth giving this a go.
HOW IT WORKS
Applications for 20201 are now open. The deadline is Midnight on the 30th May 2021.
- Go to the Coop Local Causes Page and click ‘apply now’
- You find out if you were successful in October
- You receive the money in 2 payments for the 12 Months from October 2021 to October 2022.
ADVICE ON YOUR APPLICATION
The application is very short, maybe be an hour or so. The Woodcraft Folk Staff team have produced some really detailed guidance on how to complete the online form. However the examples are from 2019, so you might want to consider that this year the Coop say they will support projects that:
- enable people to access food and co-operate together to feed everyone
- help improve people’s mental wellbeing
- offer young people opportunities to develop new skills and make a difference in their community
