Local charities and community groups in our area will shortly be able to apply for over £3million of funding from the People’s Postcode Lottery.
Applications are open from 6 February until 20 February. Voluntary groups and registered charities can apply for grants of between £500 and £20,000.
The financial support is available through three different trusts, with each trust supporting projects focused on specific themes:
• People’s Postcode Trust looks to fund projects that are aimed at promoting human rights, combating discrimination and the prevention of poverty
• Postcode Community Trust supports initiatives working to improve the health and wellbeing of communities, including arts and physical recreation projects, as well as those with a focus on reducing isolation
• Postcode Local Trust want to hear from groups working on flood prevention measures and those looking to implement renewable energy strategies, along with applications that are dedicated to improving outdoor space, such as a play park or a skate park.
Andrew adds, "There are a number of great charities and good causes in our area so please share this information to make them aware."
