Tesco Bags of Help COVID-19 Communities Fund

Tesco Bags of Help has responded to the current COVID-19 crisis by setting up a new fund to support local communities. In order respond quickly to the emergency, they have created a streamlined application and payment process to make it easier to get funds out quickly.

The programme will provide a single payment award of £500 to organisations who are supporting vulnerable groups, as part of their emergency response in supporting local communities.

Typically, the fund will support organisations that have experienced;

  • Increased demand – a holiday hunger club needs more resources to support children through the summer months or  a food bank whose stocks are running low and needs an immediate donation to enable the food bank to restock.
  • Disrupted services – a local charity setting up a delivery service  to replace its monthly lunch club, or a charity needing to set up a telephone service to support beneficiaries.
  • New services – a health focused charity having to set up a new online patient service requires new IT equipment or a mental health charity developing a new service.
