Tesco Community Grants fund thousands of local community projects across the UK, helping to fight holiday hunger, tackle mental health, support young people, host community events and much more.

We are delighted to announce that we have been selected for our project to be put towards a public vote in Tesco stores. The stores that are taking part are:

3255    South Shields   NE34 9QD        Superstore
6407    Sthshld Prn Ed Rd Exp   NE34 6RA        Express
2106    Whiteleas Way Exp       NE34 8HW        Express

Voting is open in all Tesco stores in July, August and September 2022 and customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out each time they shop. 

Tesco’s Community Grants scheme has already awarded over £96 million to more than 46,000 projects across Britain. Tesco customers get the chance to vote for three different groups every time they shop. Every three months, when votes are collected, three groups in each of Tesco’s regions will be awarded funding.

Claire De Silva, Head of Community at Tesco, said: “Tesco Community Grants help support local good causes but especially those projects supporting young people, those providing food, and local causes close to our colleagues’ hearts.” 

Groundwork’s National Chief Executive, Graham Duxbury, said: “Tesco Community Grants continues to give local projects the boost they need to help their communities thrive. By funding services which support young people and reduce food poverty, we hope to facilitate positive change from the ground up across the UK. We are pleased to have been able to help so many local good causes over the years and look forward to seeing what community organisations can achieve in the future with the right resources.”

Funding is available to community groups and charities looking to fund local projects that bring benefits to communities, particularly those helping to provide food and giving children the support they need for a good start in life. Anyone can nominate a project and organisations can apply online. To find out more visit
