The People’s Postcode Lottery are once again giving local charities and community groups the opportunity to apply for a part of over £3million of funding.
Applications have been open since Wednesday 31 July and will last for two weeks - until 14 August. Voluntary groups and registered charities in our area 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 wants applications from projects aimed at promoting human rights, combatting discrimination and poverty prevention
• 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 provides funding that’s dedicated to improving outdoor space, in addition to increasing access to it. Groups working on flood prevention measures and looking to implement renewable energy strategies are also encouraged to apply.
Andrew adds, “There are countless organisations doing fantastic work across our area. This is the perfect opportunity for them to take advantage of the funding available and to expand the reach of an existing service, get a new project off the ground, or allow it to help extend an already successful initiative.”
