Co-Op’s Local Community fund allows its members to pick a local cause to support, and every time they buy own brand Co-Op products, 1% of the spend will go to the charity of their choice.
We’re delighted that Co-Op have chosen us as one of these charities; the funding we receive through the fund will be used to help us deliver financial education workshops, helping people to use online tools in order to manage their money better. By using local volunteers and delivering the sessions in community venues, our team will have a keen understanding of the needs and challenges of their residents. We’ll be seeking to work closely with groups who are currently disadvantaged by being digitally excluded because of their age, language or literacy.
It’s really easy to support us - visit our cause page and click to support us if you’re already a member, or you can sign up for Co-Op membership for £1.
