NBAC chosen as local cause in Co-op’s Local Community Fund
We’re pleased to announce that NBAC has been chosen as a local cause as part of the Co-op’s Local Community Fund.
This means that from 23 October 2022 to 21 October 2023 Co-op members can raise money for us every time they shop at the Co-op. By scanning their membership card, members can raise 1p for every £1 spent on selected Co-op branded products and services.
Money raised from this fund will go directly to our home visiting project, supporting over 50s struggling with the cost of living to maximise their income and improve wellbeing. Without this service many over 50s with health or mobility problems would not be able to access essential advice around benefits and money. With our help 80% will report improved financial wellbeing, which will have a huge impact on mental health and wellbeing.
