Tesco’s Bags of Help grant programme has responded to the ongoing Coronavirus crisis by setting up a new short-term fund offering one-off grants of £500 to not-for-profit organisations helping vulnerable groups in their local community.
Typically, the fund will prioritise organisations:
- whose need for services has been disrupted – for example a food bank whose stocks are running low and need an immediate donation to enable the food bank to restock;
- who require to put in place new services – for example charities setting up a new home service for the elderly who usually attend a monthly lunch club or a charity needing to set up a telephone service to support beneficiaries; or
- who have seen an increased demand – a holiday hunger club needs more resources due to schools closing, or a children’s centre needs an additional temporary staff member.
Deadline: Continuous rolling programme until funds are spent.
Please note, some areas of the country are no longer open to applications. At time of publication, funding for both the Maidstone and Whitstable area are fully allocated. Areas are updated daily so please check their website before applying.
