Tesco Stronger Starts funds grants for healthy food and activities for children across the UK. We have partnered with The Sun to power their Footie for All campaign with our Tesco Stronger Starts programme to create a Footie for All Fund. We will be providing £150k in grants to grassroots football clubs across the UK as well as raising awareness of the importance of children having opportunities to thrive through opportunities for more physical and mental wellbeing. The Footie for All grants will support grassroots clubs in providing more spaces, better equipment and new kits – anything they need to help support children in their local communities.

Tesco Footie For All is managed by Groundwork who are working with greenspace scotland to support applicants in Scotland.
