We are proud to be part of thousands of communities around the world and are committed to helping each one thrive, socially and economically.
From providing employment to local people and working with local businesses to helping community groups and charitable causes, we want to make a big difference. Our priority is to continue to support the local causes that our colleagues and customers care about and our national programmes allow us to respond to these issues at a local level.
We work in partnership with lots of charities across our markets, giving colleagues and customers the chance to support a cause that is close to their hearts. From our work with Temple Street Children’s Hospital in Ireland to our Health Charity Partnership with Cancer Research UK, the British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK, our charity partnerships are making a difference.
We want to support the projects and organisations that really matter locally. We have set up community grant programmes in the UK, Republic of Ireland and Central Europe which put the power in the hands of our customers to choose which local projects Tesco supports financially.
Wherever we operate, we work closely with food banks and local charities to help feed people in need in local communities.
Our Community Champions support by delivering our core community programmes, which ranges from donating surplus food to those in need through our Community Food Connection to supporting local projects with our Bags of Help community grant scheme, however it is the work of our colleagues and the champions in particular, that really bring these schemes to life.
Value in our Town:
To help us understand how we can continue to bring value to the communities we serve we commissioned independent research into our economic and social contribution.
