Card_JauntyWhat is it?


Community Connect is a ground breaking initiative which enables Scotmid members to give back to their Communities.


Community Connect is simple: Three Good Cause Groups from Scotmid’s West Member Region will receive a financial award of up to £15,000 following a vote by Scotmid members.


Scotmid members collect one Community Connect vote every time they shop in store. They then use their votes to determine the size of the award that each Good Cause Group receives.


To help members make their decision the three Good Cause Groups attend Scotmid’s Membership Meeting and present their idea to members. The group with the most votes receives £15,000, the runner up is awarded £7,500 and 3rd place receives £2,500.


Which Community Groups can apply?


Applicants must be:

  • An established Good Cause Group or Charity
  • Part of a new group who have an idea which will enhance your local community


We’re looking for applications that:

  • Benefit the local community centered around Scotmid or Semichem stores
  • Have the greatest possible benefit to their community
  • Are scheduled to be completed within 24 months of the award date
