The ASDA Foundation Cost-of-Living Grant programme

Grants of between £500 and £2,000 are available to local community organisations across the UK to cover core running costs, food for people struggling with the cost-of-living and Warm Banks, providing a comfortable place for people to go who are unable to heat their homes.

Who can apply: locally-based, not-for-profit organisations across the United Kingdom.

Key words: Cost-of-Living, Organisational Running Costs, ‘Warm Banks’, Food, United Kingdom.

The Cost-of-Living programme offers grants to local community organisations across the UK. The programme has two main priorities:

  1. Funding to cover rent and utility costs, especially where this relates to ‘Warm Banks’ where groups are aiming to keep their facilities open for longer to provide local people with a warm, safe place to be rather than heating their homes or living in a cold property (for example, drop in and day centres), and
  2. Funding food for community cafes, food parcels, delivered meals, soup kitchens, etc.

    UK-based local not-for-profit community groups may apply for a grant of between £500 and £2,000, providing they meet the following criteria:

  • Beneficiaries must be groups of people in a local community.
  • The applying organisations must have a presence in the local community, and
  • The applying organisation must provide services that benefit the local community.

Please note that Cost-of-Living, Under-18 Better Start and Empowering Local Communities Grants may all close earlier than the scheduled deadline of Friday 24th May 2024 if they become over-subscribed. Early application is therefore advised.
