Co-op Local Community Fund

The Co–op Local Community Fund helps to support local projects that Co-op members care about. Since its launch in 2017, Co-op members have raised £39 million pounds for over 12,000 local causes.

Our original project was to deliver 8 workshops in 4 Out of School Childcare Clubs in Conwy to support and tackle childhood obesity, this had to be adapted due to Covid-19.

Out of School Childcare Clubs in Conwy received a range of resources to support children to be healthy and active. These resources included activity cards, den building supplies and guidance to introduce a ‘Buddying’ or ‘Peer led System’ where slightly older children help younger children to engage in different activities providing support, guidance and encouragement to carry out a range of different tasks. Buddying improves children’s participation for both buddies and younger children.
