The One Stop’s ‘Carriers for Causes’ grants programme is funded through the money raised from the 5p bag charge in One Stop stores in England, Wales and Scotland.
Grants of up to £1000 will be available to support projects that ‘benefit local communities and are available for good causes within two miles of a One Stop shop – helping to improve lives and local places’.
Applying for a grant
Carriers for Causes is a rolling programme, meaning that you can apply for funding all year round. Applications are shortlisted on a quarterly basis for panel decision which will take place every three months. Applicants will generally know the outcome of their application within 16 weeks of applying.
