Co-op Foundation #iwill fund

The Co-op Foundation is a charity set up by the Co-op to help disadvantaged communities work together to make things better.
One of its goals is to champion young people’s ability to contribute positively to their communities and help strengthen their sense of belonging. To that end, it has partnered with the #iwill campaign to create a £2 million fund over three years, to support youth social action to tackle loneliness.
The Foundation is looking to fund 10 partners in 2017 who will be part of a national network of organisations tackling youth loneliness.
The partners must be working in at least one of these areas:
• England-wide, or across multiple regions.
• North West (work in Liverpool, Manchester and/or Rochdale).
• North East (work in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Sunderland and/or Redcar & Cleveland).
• Yorkshire (work in Bradford, Rotherham and/or Barnsley).
• East Midlands (work in Derby, Nottingham and/or East Lindsey).
• West Midlands (work in Birmingham and/or Stoke-on-Trent).
• East of England (work in Luton only).
• South East (work in Thanet only).
• South West (work in Bristol and/or Torbay).
• London (work in Islington, Southwark and/or Tower Hamlets).
Although the #iwill fund is currently only available in England, there are plans to extend the Co-op Foundation’s work on youth loneliness and social action to the devolved nations of the UK. These plans will be announced later in 2017.

The deadline for expressions of interest is 7 July 2017 (5pm), though earlier submissions are encourage in order to provide more time to make a full application.
