About this cause
We’re the Co-op’s charity. We help communities work together to make things better. We do this by building alliances that bring together support from Co-op Members and funds we raise from other partners, to invest in the things that matter to our communities. By working co-operatively, we make an even bigger difference. From helping young people take action to support each other’s wellbeing, to bringing a whole community together to save a much-loved local space, our support gives people the power to improve their own futures. Working across the UK, we provide extra help where it’s most needed, reducing inequality so that everyone can reach their potential.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Co-operate 2022 is Co-op’s plan to bring people together to improve community wellbeing over the next three years. The Co-op Foundation will help deliver this plan’s three priorities: 1) Help communities come together to save, support or improve 2,000 spaces. 2) Support people to improve their mental wellbeing. 3) Enable people of all ages to reach their potential through education and skills.
