New Lottery Funding Available

Three grant-giving trusts, funded by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, will open for funding applications from good causes between 21st January and 4th February 2020.

The trusts are:

  • People’s Postcode Trust, for projects aimed at promoting human rights, combating discrimination and the prevention of poverty. More information: www.postcodetrust.org.uk
  • Postcode Community Trust, for initiatives to improve the health and wellbeing of communities – including arts and physical recreation projects – as well as those with a focus on reducing isolation. More information: www.postcodecommunitytrust.org.uk
  • Postcode Local Trust, for groups dedicated to improving and increasing access to outdoor space. Groups working on flood prevention measures and looking to implement renewable energy strategies are also eligible to apply. More information: www.postcodelocaltrust.org.uk

Registered charities can apply for between £500 and £20,000 while the limit for not-for-profit organisations without charitable status is £2,000.

I would strongly urge all charities in the constituency to consider applying for this grant. National Lottery funding has produced a great number of successes in the past and it would be fantastic to see more local charities making the most of the opportunities to expand their work.
