Local charities and good causes impacted by Covid-19 are being urged to apply for up to £20,000 in funding.

Organisations can apply to Postcode Neighbourhood Trust for grants between £500 and £20,000 from now until next Wednesday (19 August), when applications will close.

 The funding boost is available thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Groups looking to increase their resilience, adapt or expand their services as a result of the pandemic should apply. Funding will support a variety of activities, including covering core costs.

 Interested applicants should make use of the short funding guide and eligibility quiz to ensure they are eligible to be considered.

 Laura Chow, head of charities at People’s Postcode Lottery, said: “Over the past few months we’ve seen the important role grassroots good causes play in communities across Britain.

“There will be challenging times ahead so I’m delighted that players of People’s Postcode Lottery can support these organisations with this funding opportunity. Up to £4 million will be awarded in grants through Postcode Neighbourhood Trust, so I encourage small, local charities to make sure they get an application in by 19 August.”

 A minimum of 32% of each ticket goes directly to charities. Players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised more than £600m for more than 8,500 good causes across Britain and internationally since 2005.

Groups that may not be suitable for funding through Postcode Neighbourhood Trust can apply to one of three other People’s Postcode Lottery trusts. People’s Postcode Trust, Postcode Local Trust and Postcode Community Trust all support different themes.
