A £1m fund has been launched today by the Co-op Group’s charity, the Co-op Foundation, to enable groups in Wales with a community and environmental focus to safeguard spaces and become more sustainable.
The funding comes from the 5p single-use carrier bag charge in the Group’s Welsh food stores.
Welsh groups can access grants of up to £10,000 to explore ways to make community spaces more sustainable. Funding could support feasibility costs, technical or legal fees, and projects which test and explore new ideas.
Eligible organisations must engage local people and support the environment, with applications closing at noon on Friday, 21 June.
