Welcome to this update, which goes to everyone who signed up to receive news from Chorlton Community Cooperative, Let’s Reimagine Our Chorlton and Chorlton and District Coops

  • Applications invited for the Co-op supermarket’s Local Community Fund
  • Latest on Chorlton Community Cooperative – new logo and website coming soon

Apply now to receive Co-op funding in 2024

But hurry! Applications close 11 June

The Co-op gives 1% of what its members spend on Co-op own-brand products to local community projects – that’s a significant amount of money. Each area has three local projects that members can choose between to receive the 1% of what they spend during the year.

Applications are now open for the three local projects to be funded from November this year. It’s a simple process to apply, just a short form. Your project should do at least one of the following:

  • bring people together to access food
  • help to improve people’s mental wellbeing
  • create opportunities for young people to be heard and make a difference
  • help people to save and restore nature or tackle climate change

And you need to be an organisation that is registered or based in the UK

  • has its own bank account
  • operates in your local community
  • is not for profit

Full details and to apply.

Applications close 11 June.

Chorlton Community Cooperative – progress

The Chorlton Get Together last September was the first event to be organised by the Chorlton Community Cooperative – a new organisation designed to make it easier to organise, fund and collaborate on local initiatives. The Get Together was a great success. We closed a section of Wilbraham Road for an afternoon – watch our film of the day.

Since then, work has progressed on getting the Chorlton Community Cooperative on to a more permanent footing, including work on an exciting new website and logo – to be launched soon.

We are planning a follow up Chorlton Get Together in September 2023. We’ll keep you up to date.
