Funding Opportunity for Local Good Causes

The Postcode Lottery is now open for new applications and local organisations can apply for a share of a funding pot worth over £3 million.

Awards of between £500 and £20,000 are available to charities and community groups with the application process being open from the 1st of August until the 15th of August.

Previously funded initiatives include community choirs, sports clubs, wildlife conservation charities and other groups that benefit the local community.

There are three trusts in which groups can apply for funding. Each trust has a particular theme:

The Postcode Community Trust looks for applications on initiatives that will benefit communities through the delivery of grass roots health and well being programmes.

The People’s Postcode Trust supports projects aimed at promoting human rights, employability and combatting poverty.

The Postcode Local Trust focuses on proposals that aim to improve biodiversity and outdoor spaces.

A wide variety of local groups could benefit from this funding and I would strongly encourage organisations in Inverclyde to submit an application before the 15th of August.

For more information on how to apply for funding please visit the trusts’ websites.
