Asda Foundation – COVID-19 Hygiene Grants

Grants are available for care homes, hospices, hospitals and homeless shelters supporting residents/patients in facilities in the UK, who are struggling and unable to provide their own toiletries either through lack of funds or access to family support as a result of the current restrictions.

Maximum Value:£ 500

The ASDA Foundation’s grants programmes aim to support grassroots charitable organisations working at the heart of its stores’ communities. Registered charities, community groups, voluntary organisations and other not-for-profit organisations in the UK can apply for support with initiatives that will make a real long-term difference, benefiting the wider community.

In response to coronavirus/COVID-19, the Foundation has developed two new grant streams:

  • Hygiene Grant – focused on personal hygiene dignity, supporting residents/patients in facilities, who are struggling and unable to provide their own toiletries either through lack of funds or access to family support. Applications are expected from care homes, hospices, hospitals and homeless shelters.
  • Healthy Holiday Grant – designed to support groups that typically would be holding summer holiday activities to ensure children are provided with a hot meal. (Covered in a separate entry.)

The Foundation does not accept applications directly. Applications are made through the applicant’s local Asda store’s Community Champion, whose role is to support projects within the community.

Applications are accepted from registered charities, registered not-for-profit companies, community interest companies and unincorporated clubs or associations in the UK.

To be eligible, applicant organisations must be able to provide:

  • Clear rationale for how the grant money will be used.
  • A bank statement or deposit slip.
  • At least one accepted document as per below:
    • Registered charities – charity number/constitution.
    • Registered companies – company number/memorandum and articles of association.
    • Community interest companies (CICs) – company number/constitution/memorandum and articles of association.
    • Unincorporated club or association – constitution/club rules.
