I have been made aware of an opportunity presented by the Postcode Lottery Trust that gives the opportunity for local charities and community groups to receive funding.
The People’s Postcode Trust, the Postcode Community Trust and the Postcode Local Trust are all open for applications on 6th February 2019. These Trusts are funded by the players of the People’s Postcode Lottery.
Applications are open from 6 February until 20 February and you can apply for grants of between £500 and £20,000. Full details of how to apply are on the websites for each trust. Each trust has a separate focus to which the funding will be given;
- The People’s Postcode Trust supports projects which focus on the prevention of poverty, promotion of human rights and combating discrimination. Their website is http://www.postcodetrust.org.uk/ which has full details on how to apply.
- The Postcode Community Trust supports projects focused on improving health and well-being through grassroots sports, reducing isolation, arts and physical recreation. Their website is as follows; http://www.postcodecommunitytrust.org.uk/
- The Postcode Local Trust supports projects that support green space improvements, increasing access to outdoor spaces, renewable energy and flood prevention, with the following website http://www.postcodelocaltrust.org.uk/ available for details.
This is a great opportunity for our community projects to receive funding. I encourage local charities needing funding support to apply.
