Tesco Community Grants

Tesco Community Grants (previously Bags of Help) will fund local good causes that focus on supporting children and families.

Three projects from each local area will be shortlisted to go to the public vote every three months. First place gets the grant amount requested, up to a maximum of £1,500 (£1,000 for second place and £500 for third).

Applications are open to all local good causes, but they are currently prioritising helping projects that support food security, children and young people and local store nominated good causes. This is not an exhaustive list and other project ideas also welcomed.

Examples include:

  • Breakfast clubs
  • Holiday clubs
  • Food banks
  • Meals on Wheels
  • Equipment or non-statutory services for nurseries or schools e.g. forest schools, library books
  • Equipment for Brownie, Guide or Scout Groups e.g. camping equipment, badges
  • Play areas
  • Counselling and support services for young people
  • Services or equipment to support children and young people’s health
  • Equipment/kit for youth sports teams

They won’t fund projects already running, so think how you could add or improve on a project if you wanted to support something you know works well.

No deadline.
