Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being awarded to local community projects.

Voluntary Action Epping Forest Benefits is one of the groups on the shortlist.

VAEF offer advice on housing, benefits and debt, as poor housing and low income are often major barriers to recovery and wellbeing. Voluntary Action Epping Forest (VAEF) have known clients whom are struggling to maintain a decent standard of living, frequently going without basic essentials including food, adequate heating in their homes and clothes so that they can keep up with rent payments and afford essential household bills.

VAEF Benefits Advice is for residents who are housebound in the District and unable to seek assistance locally providing practical assistance and support to housebound residents across the Epping Forest District. The service reaches the most vulnerable and isolated people living in the district and includes Benefits checks, including Attendance Allowance, Disability Living Allowance, assisting clients with the change over to Personal Independence Payments, advice on welfare benefits and information and referrals to other support services.

Voting is open in all Tesco stores throughout July and August. Customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop.
