About Tesco Bags of Help Covid-19 Communities Fund

The programme will provide a single payment award of £500 to organisations who are supporting vulnerable groups, as part of their emergency response in supporting local communities.

Typically, the fund will support organisations that have experienced;

  • Increased demand – a holiday hunger club needs more resources to support children through the summer months or a food bank whose stocks are running low and needs an immediate donation to enable the food bank to restock.
  • Disrupted services – a local charity setting up a delivery service to replace its monthly lunch club, or a charity needing to set up a telephone service to support beneficiaries.
  • New services – a health focused charity having to set up a new online patient service requires new IT equipment or a mental health charity developing a new service.

Eligible organisations

Applications will be welcomed from a wide range of organisations including: voluntary/community organisations, registered charities, schools, health bodies, Parish/Town councils, social enterprises, Community Interest Companies, community councils, local authorities and housing organisations. Other not-for-profit organisations might also be eligible.

Businesses and 'for profit' organisations are not eligible.

Typically we would welcome applications from organisations such as;

  • Health focused charities – such as cancer, diabetes and heart charities
  • Food banks
  • Hospices
  • Homeless charities
  • Charities supporting the elderly or those needing to self-isolate
  • Women's refuges
  • Charities supporting children and young people

The fund will close to applications on Friday 18th September.
