This scheme gives each branch £1,000 (or £500 in convenience shops) to share out between three local good causes each month such as welfare organisations, community groups, schools or local divisions of national charities.

If you are a UK-registered national charity and would like to be considered for our Community Matters Online initiative then please post your applications on headed paper for consideration to:

Waitrose Community Matters Team
Waitrose Limited
Doncastle Road
Bracknell
Berkshire
RG12 8YA

Please give a brief outline of the work your charity does along with details of any current projects that you are seeking funding for. This should be no more than one side of A4. The Community Matters Team will then only contact you if your application is successful or if they require further details.
