Further Funding Available for Charities

Registered charities will be able to apply for a grant of between £500 and £20,000 if they meet certain criteria. The grant will be funded by the People’s Postcode Lottery, applications opened on 4 August and will close on 19 August 2020.

There are four trusts available to apply to but each registered charity can only apply to one. Each of these trusts focuses on supporting projects with different themes, they are:


Postcode Neighbourhood Trust

The Postcode Neighbourhood Trust will aim to fund charities across Great Britain that want to expand/adapt services to meet new challenges.


People’s Postcode Trust

The People‘s Postcode Trust funds charities across Great Britain under the themes of ‘Promoting human rights, combatting discrimination and preventing poverty’.


Postcode Community Trust

The Postcode Community Trust funds charities across Great Britain under the themes of ‘Improving community health & wellbeing, increasing participation in arts & physical recreation and reducing isolation’.


Postcode Local Trust

The Postcode Local Trust funds charities across Great Britain under the themes of ‘Improving biodiversity & green spaces, increasing community access to outdoor space and combatting climate change & promoting sustainability’.



Charities should apply to the trust that best suits the aims and projects of their charity. Guides and eligibility questionnaires can be located on the website of each of the four trusts to help applicants decide which grant might be best for them.

The Postcode Lottery have said there is a total of almost £7 million to be awarded in grants and are encouraging smaller local charities to apply.
