Tesco Bags of Help COVID-19 Communities Fund have just released new funding for groups and organisations to continue the work they are doing in their community.

The application and payment process has been streamlined to make it easier to get funds out quickly and groups can apply for a single payment of £500 for their work in directly responding to the crisis.

Groups and organisations can apply online through the following link – tescobagsofhelp.org.uk/tesco-cv-fund/

Typically the types of projects that will be funded are:

  • 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.
