The Asda Foundation grants programme is designed to support grass roots organisations in the heart of the stores communities.
In response to Covid-19, Asda Foundation have developed 2 new grant streams:
- Hygiene Grant: This grant is focused on personal hygiene dignity, supporting residents/patients in facilities, who are struggling and unable to provide their own toiletries either through lack of funds or access to family support. We would expect applications from care homes, hospices, hospitals and homeless shelters.
- Healthy Holiday Grant: This grant is designed to support groups that typically would be holding summer holiday activities to ensure children are provided with a hot meal. If social distancing is relaxed before school holidays, then standard (Transforming Communities Improving Lives (TCIL) criteria would apply (Option 1). If social distancing hasn’t relaxed, we would provide grants for groups to deliver provisions to children at home (Option 2).
To be eligible to apply for a grant, your group must be one of the following;
- a Charity
- a not for profit company
- a Community Interest Company (CIC)
- an unincorporated Club or Association
