Boost for struggling families as Tesco campaign provides grants for children


Tesco has launched a new campaign called Stronger Starts, which aims to provide grants of up to £1,500 for children. The campaign will offer a total of £5 million in funding to youth projects and schools to support sports, education, and nutrition.

How can children benefit?

Through the Stronger Starts campaign, children can receive grants for healthy food and essential items such as football boots. The funding will be used to support community efforts, such as providing food at school breakfast clubs or supplying equipment for youth sports and fitness sessions.

How can you get involved?

Customers can participate by voting for their preferred causes at their local Tesco stores. Additionally, schools and groups can be nominated for funding on the Tesco website. This allows the community to have a say in where the funds will be allocated.

Why is this campaign important?

Research by community charity Groundwork has revealed that nearly four in five schools are using their budgets to fund food for children. Tesco's Stronger Starts campaign aims to ease the financial burden on schools and provide additional support to help children thrive.

Support from a familiar face

Dancer Jordan Banjo has urged people to nominate their schools and help make a significant difference through the Stronger Starts campaign. By participating, individuals can contribute to improving the well-being of children in their community.

Overall, Tesco's Stronger Starts campaign is providing a much-needed boost to hard-up families. With grants of up to £1,500, children will have access to essential resources that can positively impact their lives. To nominate a school or group for a grant, visit
