Dansworks Dance Academy of Performing Arts CIC calls out for votes to get a share of Tesco’s Community Grants Fund

Dansworks Dance Academy of Performing Arts CIC are bidding for a cash boost from the Tesco Community Grants initiative. Tesco works with community charity Groundwork to run its community funding scheme, which sees grants of up to £1,500, £1,000 and £500 awarded to local community projects.

Three groups in every community have been shortlisted to receive the cash award and shoppers are being invited to head along to Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant.

Dansworks Dance Academy of Performing Arts CIC is one of the groups on the shortlist.

Dansworks want to provide ongoing mental health support for their staff, students and their families.

Dansworks has always been a strong advocate of positive mental health support but over the last couple of years we have felt the need to step up the level of support we provide. This is due to growing influences from social media combined with negative effects of Covid and Lockdown. We aim to support as many of our students and staff as possible at such a traumatic time.

Voting is open in all these Tesco stores, in October, November and December and customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out each time they shop.

Tesco’s Community Grants scheme has already provided over £90 million to more than 40,000 projects across Britain. Tesco customers get the chance to vote for three different groups every time they shop. Every three months, when votes are collected, three groups in each of Tesco’s regions will be awarded funding.

Claire De Silva, Head of Community at Tesco, said: “Tesco Community Grants help support local good causes but especially those projects supporting young people, those providing food, and local causes close to our colleagues’ hearts.”

Groundwork’s National Chief Executive, Graham Duxbury, said: “Tesco Community Grants continues to give local projects the boost they need to help their communities thrive. By funding services which support young people and reduce food poverty, we hope to facilitate positive change from the ground up across the UK. We are pleased to have been able to help so many local good causes over the years and look forward to seeing what community organisations can achieve in the future with the right resources.”

Funding is available to community groups and charities looking to fund local projects that bring benefits to communities, particularly those helping to provide food and giving children the support, they need for a good start in life. Anyone can nominate a project and organisations can apply online. To find out more visit www.tesco.com/communitygrants.
