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.
This year, 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.
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.
The deadline for expressions of interest is 28 February 2018.
