Applications for the next round of the Co-op Local Community Fund are now open!

Each year, the Co-op invites local voluntary and not-for-profit community organisations to become Co-op Local Community Fund recipients.  Every time a Co-op member buys selected Co-op branded products and services, it gives these local causes a helping hand.

To date over £100 million has been raised across the country, which has also benefited many Bute organisations with various projects over that time.

If you have a project that fits into one of the following categories, your group could be eligible to apply:

- bringing people together to access food

- helping improve people's mental wellbeing

- creating opportunities for young people to be heard and to make a difference

- helping people protect biodiversity or tackle climate change by reducing carbon emissions
