In response to the Covid-19 pandemic Asda Foundation has created 2 new grant schemes. Grants of up to £500 are available for:
Hygiene Grant – 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. (Covered in a separate entry.)
Healthy Holiday Grant – designed to support charitable groups that typically would be holding summer holiday activities to ensure children are provided with a hot meal. Grant criteria will vary according to the current government social distancing/lock-down guidelines. (Asda Foundation will follow each government’s individual decision across England, Wales, Scotland and NI.)
There is only one grant allowed per group. Applications are made via the group’s local Asda Store’s Community Champion and a total of £1,125 can be awarded per store.
The Foundation does not accept applications directly. Applications are made through the applicant’s local Asda store’s Community Champion, whose role is to support projects within the community and applications and will be assessed within six weeks from the date the Community Champion submits them to the Asda Foundation.
Applications are accepted from registered charities, registered not-for-profit companies, community interest companies and unincorporated clubs or associations in the UK.
