Round two of Tesco Bags of Help opened on 18 April so get your application going. Bags of Help is available to a wide range of community groups, local authorities and organisations across England, Wales and Scotland and they can apply for grants to improve local green spaces. Successful projects will go forward to a public vote in Tesco stores which will decide whether they receive a grant of £8,000, £10,000 or £12,000. Projects that will get the green light as a result of funding will include new pocket parks, sports facilities, schools, woodland walks and community gardens. 

Bags of Help is administered by Groundwork, working in Scotland with greenspace scotland, and funded by Tesco customers from the proceeds of the 5p charge for plastic carrier bags. Groundwork anticipate grants being awarded to 144 successful groups across Scotland in November 2016. Full eligibility criteria and detailed application guidance is available online here

This funding round closes on Fri 3 June 2016 and we have a team of Community Enablers that can provide support or advice when submitting your application. Find their details here
