About The Co-operative Community Dividend Fund

The Community Dividend Fund has been relaunched in an effort to offer vital support to good causes, groups and charities. The decision to relaunch the Community Dividend Fund comes after, for the past 12 months, it was temporarily repurposed to support good causes impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Groups can now apply for between £100 to £5,000 every two months. The average grant is £2,000.

Projects now need to align with at least one of the following areas:

  • · Access to food – improving access to food in a way that encourages healthy, balanced choices to be made.
  • · Health and wellbeing - projects that directly or indirectly promote physical and mental health and wellbeing.
  • · Inclusion projects - directly or indirectly support greater inclusion of vulnerable, excluded, or hard to reach groups.
  • · Environment – inside and outside spaces that support increased sustainability e.g. energy saving projects, sustainable travel, biodiversity and food security.

Grants are available to full members of Central England Co-op in the following areas: West Midlands, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Staffordshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Rutland, Nottinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire, West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, Suffolk, Norfolk, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire.

Members of Central England Co-operative, including local good causes, community groups, charities, social enterprises and Community Interest Companies, are eligible to apply as long as they:

  • · Have been a full member of Central England Co-operative for at least six months.
  • · Are located in the trading area of a Central England Co-operative outlet.
  • · Are a not-for-private profit organisation.

Beneficiaries must be communities in which Central England Co-operative trades. Applicants should clearly demonstrate the benefit to the community. All projects must be consistent with Co-operative values and principles.
