Community Connect is a major new initiative which enables Scotmid members to make a difference in their communities.
Community Connect is simple: Every time a Scotmid Co-operative member shops in a Scotmid Food store they can scan their Community Connect Card to receive one Community Connect vote.
Members then register and attend the Scotmid Ordinary General Meeting (OGM) in October to cast their votes to allocate awards of up to £15,000 to three Good Cause Groups.
The three Good Cause Groups have been selected by a panel of Scotmid members and can be found here.

Community Connect is currently trialling in Scotmid’s North Member region which covers postcodes AB, DD1 to DD5, DD7 to DD11, IV, KW and PH.
For over 150 years, Scotmid has worked hand in hand with the communities we serve – Community Connect will exist alongside our Community Grant scheme which distributed over £110,000 in the last year.
In addition our Charity of the Year initiative has raised over £1 million in the last three years.
