Charities have chance to partner with Co-op

Posted onPosted on 14th Mar

Central Co-op is looking to partner with registered charities, both on a national and local level.

It has created an online survey for charities to fill out, from which a shortlist of potential charity partners will be drawn up for members to choose from.

The announcement follows a successful seven-year partnership with Dementia UK. During this time, Central Co-op and its members have raised around £2.5m.

Dr Hilda Hayo, chief executive at Dementia UK, commented: “We’re so grateful for the ongoing support from Central Co-op colleagues, customers and Members since 2017.  It’s been our longest-standing and highest value partnership to date, and over the last seven years the number of Admiral Nurses has grown from 200 to 447.

“Together, you’ve raised an incredible £2.5 million which has provided a lifeline to thousands of families living with dementia when they’ve needed it most. It has been a pleasure to work with you and I’d like to offer a personal thank you, on behalf of all of us at Dementia UK, for taking us closer to a world where no one faces dementia alone.”

Hannah Gallimore, social change manager at Central Co-op, added: “Our partnership with Dementia UK has been one of mutual effort and shared values. Together, we’ve made a significant impact on the lives of individuals and families affected by the disease, playing to our individual strengths in order to make a meaningful difference. It’s been a collaborative journey where both parties have benefited, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to have worked alongside Dementia UK.

“As a co-operative, we believe in the power of collaboration and giving back to the communities we serve. We’re thrilled to launch this initiative to find a new charity partner that shares our values and vision for creating positive change.”

Charities interested in applying can access the survey online at The survey will remain open for applications until th April.
