NEW funding opportunities
Dawn Bowden AM said “Local groups may wish to take note of the following information about new funding opportunities via the Postcode lottery”.
The People’s Postcode Trust , the Postcode Community Trust and the Postcode Local Trust, all open for applications on 6th of February 2019. These Trusts are funded by the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
Applications are open from 6th February until 20th February, to apply for grants of between £500 and £20,000. Full details of how to apply are on the websites for each trust.
The three trusts each have a different focus for the funding:
People’s Postcode Trust – supports projects which focus on the prevention of poverty, promotion of human rights and combatting discrimination. http://www.postcodetrust.org.uk/
Postcode Community Trust – supports projects focussed on improving health and well-being through grassroots sports, reducing isolation, arts and physical recreation. http://www.postcodecommunitytrust.org.uk/
Postcode Local Trust – supports projects that support green space improvements, increasing access to outdoor spaces, renewable energy and flood prevention. http://www.postcodelocaltrust.org.uk/
Dawn added “I am frequently asked about local funding opportunities and I hope relevant groups follow up on these opportunities with the Postcode lottery”..
