Postcode Community Trust Opens for Round 2 of Community Grants

2nd August 2018

Charities and other not-for-profit organisations with projects in Great Britain that improve health and wellbeing have two weeks to submit their initial application.

The People’s Postcode Community Trust was established in 2014 to support marginalised groups in obtaining the skills and resources to effect change in their own communities. The Trust operates its own society lottery and receives all of its funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

The Trust provides short-term, designated funding for new projects, or significant expansions of existing projects, in Great Britain.

The Trust will consider projects which improve health and wellbeing through:

  • Grassroots sports, arts and recreation projects that improve health and wellbeing.
  • Projects that improve the health of communities, through, for example, first aid courses, befriending, counselling or reducing isolation.

The projects can be up to 12 months in length.

Grants range from £500 to £20,000. Only registered charities can apply for grants of up to £20,000. The maximum grant for groups that are not formally registered as a charity is £2,000.

There is a two-stage application process.

Stage one applications for Round 2 will be accepted from 1 August to 15 August 2018.
