Apply now to receive up to £20,000 from People's Postcode Trust

People’s Postcode Trust, a grant giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, is delighted to announce that applications are now open for local charities and community groups alike to apply for a share of a £1 million funding pot raised by players. Applications will remain open until the 15 August 2018, with groups being able to apply for awards from £500 up to £20,000 to support a whole host of projects that benefit communities through promoting human rights and employability, and helping to fight poverty.

Projects funded previously through the trust include projects to help support survivors of modern slavery, creative coding workshops for girls aged 11-18, as well as initiatives assisting isolated and disadvantaged people into employment. This is an excellent chance for organisations to access funding and make a difference to lives in local communities.

Laura Chow, Head of Charities at People’s Postcode Lottery, said:

“Local charities and grassroots organisations play a massive role in fighting poverty and helping to advance human rights by reaching out to some of the most vulnerable groups in society. I would encourage as many groups as possible to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity and get applying – I can’t wait to read the applications!”

For any groups seeking funding that falls outside of this category, players of People’s Postcode Lottery also support two other trusts which are also currently accepting applications: Postcode Community Trust and Postcode Local Trust.

A minimum of 32% from every People’s Postcode Lottery ticket goes directly to good causes. To date, players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised over £320 million for more than 4,000 good causes across Great Britain and internationally.
