The York Road Project based in Woking, believes that everyone has a right to a home regardless of issues they may face. They offer assistance to help people get a roof over their head and help with CV writing, form filling and provide discussion groups.
I chose the York Road Project to contribute to as part of Co-op’s Local Community Fund as I have an interest in helping to defeat homelessness. I feel good that I, along with other Co-op Members, am helping support my community through my daily shop.
“We want to pay for local homeless and marginalised adults to go to Woking Leisure centre and take part in sport with coaches and equipment. We want to provide weekly sport sessions, where they take part in table tennis tournaments, badminton & football inside.” York Road Project
I shop at my local Co-op everyday, which is where I found out about the Local Community Fund. As a member, when you buy selected Co-op products and services from the Co-op Group, 1% goes to your chosen local community cause. You also get 5% back on your Membership card to spend at Co-op.
