Funding for Local Groups to Help With Cost-of-Living Rise and Refugees in the UK

Funding for local projects and activities which are important to the community and benefit the lives of local residents.

Phase 2 of the Empowering Local Communities Grant programme from the Asda Foundation is now available to support communities with a range of things, including the increase in the cost of living.

Not-for-profit organisations in the UK can apply and should be working in local communities for the benefit of residents. Groups supporting refugees are also welcomed to apply for this funding.

Grants of between £500 and £1,500 will support projects under four themes:

  • Building resilient communities.
  • Active lives.
  • Seasonal celebrations and festivals.
  • Leading healthier lives.

Activities for this round need to take place before 30 September 2022.

Application support and guidance are available from Asda Community Champions based in local Asda superstores. Completed forms should be passed to the Community Champion who will then submit the application to the Asda Foundation. The Foundation does not accept applications directly from organisations.

The deadline for applications is 19 August 2022.
