We’re doubling the amount our members give to support their communities by choosing Co-op

Co-op Membership-3

The Co-op was founded over 175 years ago, to share the value we create with our members and with their communities. The coronavirus pandemic has shown that our communities need our help now more than ever, and we wanted our membership offering to step up and do even more for them.


So, from today, when our members buy selected Co-op branded products and services, we’ll double what they give to support their communities.


A helping hand to you and your community

From today, when you choose Co-op and swipe your membership card or scan your phone using the Co-op App, 2p for every pound spent on selected Co-op branded products and services goes to you and we’ll give the same to thousands of community causes.

Co-op App


A donation gives a helping hand to local grassroots causes close to your home and close to your heart, which you can choose on the Co-op App. A donation also goes to create lasting change on big issues we care about – such as access to food, mental wellbeing support and education – in partnership with like-minded organisations.


As well as supporting local communities like never before, Co-op Members also receive exclusive Member deals from Food, Funeralcare, Insurance and Legal Services as well as personalised offers every week, chosen just for them.


Making the most of the personalised offers and the new membership reward could see our members save £15.66 a month.


What’s more, if you act fast, members using the new Co-op app have the opportunity to redeem a free Co-op ‘Irresistible’ Fairtrade 100g chocolate bar, to celebrate the our new membership.


Co-op colleague members will also see their employee benefits increase as they will now enjoy 20% discount on Co-op branded products and 10% on branded in all Co-op food stores, alongside a wide range of colleague member discounts.


Find out more about Co-op Membership on our website.


There’s never been a better time to join our Co-op


So go online, ask in store or download the Co-op App to sign up for Membership and start giving more back to your community. You’ll also be able to choose your own personalised offers and the local cause you’d like to support.
