People’s Postcode Lottery

4th August 2020

South Shropshire MP Philip Dunne has urged local charities and good causes to apply for funding from one of four trusts funded by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Applications are open from Tuesday 4th August until Wednesday 19th August. Organisations can apply for grants between £500 and £20,000.

Interested organisations can apply to one of four trusts, which each support projects focussed on different themes:

  • Postcode Neighbourhood Trust will help good causes affected by COVID-19. Groups looking to adapt or expand services, or to increase their resilience should apply.
  • People’s Postcode Trust funds projects aimed at promoting human rights, combatting discrimination and helping to prevent poverty.
  • Postcode Community Trust supports initiatives working to improve health and wellbeing in communities, including those that look to reduce isolation. The Trust also supports projects that increase participation in arts and physical recreation.
  • Postcode Local Trust is for groups looking to increase community access to outdoor space and improve biodiversity. Groups looking to improve sustainability or combat climate change are also encouraged to apply.

Good causes should apply to the trust that best supports the aims of their project. Short funding guides and an eligibility quiz can be found on each trust website to help applicants.

Mr Dunne said: “The work of community organisations in South Shropshire during these difficult times has been nothing short of inspirational – the amount of good they do for the most vulnerable in our community cannot be overstated.

I encourage any interested organisations to take the eligibility quiz then apply for the trust that best fits their needs.”
