Groundwork - One Stop Community Partnership Programme
Working with the One Stop network of shops, national organisation Groundwork
have launched a programme to offer grants and begin a partnership with local One Stop stores.
Their Community Partnership Programme is designed to support community groups or organisations that operate near a One Stop store and are working to deliver solutions that:
- Tackle food poverty
- Support the vulnerable, the elderly, or low-income families
- Run youth sports teams or similar activity
Alongside the grant, Groundwork says a long-term tailored programme of support would also be given by the One Stop Community Team and One Stop Store Team.
At the time of writing, there was no recognised deadline, suggesting this is a Continuous Rolling Programme and applications can be accepted at any time.
