The funding, which is being made available through the Asda Foundation’s Empowering Local Communities Fund, will support projects under four themes:
building resilient communities;
seasonal celebrations & festivals;
leading healthier lives.
This could include providing equipment, essentials and facilities to enable activities to take place; activities celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee; or cooking and education classes to enable positive mental health.
Applications should be made through each local Asda store’s Community Champion by the 15th April 2022.

The funding, which is made available through the Matrix Causes Fund, can be used for core activities that support vulnerable persons such as prisoners, asylum seekers, people with mental health difficulties, people (particularly children) with disabilities, or women in refuges.
Applications from organisations not registered as a charity but established for charitable purposes may also be considered.
The deadline for applications is 5pm on the 11th April 2022.
