Postcode Local Trust funding
Charities and community groups around Great Britain can apply for up to £20,000 of funding for environmental, sustainability, wildlife and ecology projects.
Applications for funding from Postcode Local Trust, a grant giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, are now open and will close on the 28th August, with a funding pot of over £2 million available. Both charities and community groups are eligible to apply for the grants of between £500 and £20,000.
With previously funded projects including hospital gardens, wildlife conservation charities, and training for young people in horticultural skills; this is a fantastic opportunity for groups to access funding to make a difference in the local community.
Clara Govier, Head of Charities at People’s Postcode Lottery, said:
“Small charities and community groups play a massive role in enhancing our environment, both on a local scale and more widely. It’s so important that they are supported, in order to create and nurture outdoor spaces, support wildlife and reduce our impact on the planet. We’ve supported lots of fantastic projects so far and I’d encourage as many groups as possible to apply.”
For any groups seeking funding that falls outside of the environmental category, players of People’s Postcode Lottery also support two other funds which are now open for applications: People’s Postcode Trust and Postcode Community Trust.
As a charity lottery, a minimum of 31% goes directly to charities. Players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised more than £221.2 million to date for over 3000 good causes across Great Britain and internationally.
