Tampon Tax Community Fund
The Tampon Tax Community Fund aims to support local organisations working with women who are most marginalised to overcome barriers that prevent them from fulfilling their potential. We are looking to fund projects that raise the aspirations of girls and women and make a long-term difference to health, wellbeing, confidence and social/economic activity as well as addressing equality gaps.

Grants of between £5,000 and £10,000 are available, for a duration of 12 months. We will fund volunteer expenses, activity costs and staff costs relating to the project/service. Purchase of capital equipment is not eligible.

Applications open on 17th September 2018 and close MIDDAY on 26th October 2018.



Funding competition offering grants up to £25,000 to UK not-for-profit groups for projects that make a difference to local communities.
The fund operates like a competition with the most voted-for projects receiving funding or going forward to a judging panel depending on the amount of funding requested Approximately £1.5 million is available through the Fund this year.

This year Aviva is partnering with Crowdfunder UK to give groups the chance to raise extra funds for their project as part of the competition. As projects collect votes, groups will also be able to choose to crowdfund and turn their support into pledges.

The most-voted for projects asking for up to £1,000 will secure their funding.

The projects with the most votes asking for up to £5,000 or more will go through to "The Finals" and be judged by Aviva's judging panel.

Entries will be accepted from Tuesday 11 September until midday on Tuesday 9 October 2018.,380AG,CBSZBZ,BL6QP,1


Localgiving has teamed up with the Postcode Community Trust to provide over 400 grants of £500 to small charities and community groups.

To benefit from funding, projects need to meet either of the following themes:
• Overcoming barriers to participation in physical activities in creative ways
• Increasing social cohesion through developing access to sports and other recreational activities

Grants can be used to support the general running costs of new and existing sports and physical activities. For example, this could include: facilities hire, kit & equipment,coaching qualifications, other volunteer expenses etc.

Applications are able to be made from 15th May to 31st October 2018. As part of the grant, organisations who are not currently members of Localgiving will also be awarded an annual Localgiving membership, worth £96, that will enable them to benefit from Localgiving's online fundraising support and services.


Bags of Help is Tesco's local community grant scheme where the money raised by the carrier bag charge in Tesco stores is being used to fund thousands of community projects across the UK. The projects must meet the criteria of bringing benefits to the community.  Bags of Help is administered by Groundwork

How does Bags of Help work?
Bags of Help is always open for applications from charities and community organisations.  Applications are assessed by Groundwork to ensure they are eligible. In areas where application numbers are high, Tesco colleagues will shortlist the projects to determine which go forward to the customer vote.

Three community projects in each local area will be voted on by customers in Tesco stores throughout the UK, with projects changing every other month. Following the vote, the project that received the most votes in its area will receive a grant of up to £4,000, second place receiving up to £2,000 and third place up to £1,000.
