Postcode Community Trust will re-open its Small Grants Programme on the 23rd January 2017 for Expressions of Interest.
The Postcode Community Trust was established in 2014 to support marginalised groups in obtaining the skills & resources to effect change in their own communities – awarding £2 million of funding in 2015.
Through the Small Grants Programme, the Trust will provide grants of £500 – £20,000 (£10,000 in Wales) for projects that benefit communities through grass-roots sports, arts and recreation programmes and healthy living initiatives that improve a community’s physical and mental health. Funding is available to registered charities, voluntary organisations, community interest companies and social enterprises. Please note that only registered charities can apply for grants above £2,000.
Previous projects supported include:
Adel Pre-School in Leeds which received a grant of £20,000 to construct an outdoor play area with specific focus on sensory elements.
Blantyre Soccer Academy which received a grant of £13,070 to purchase new training equipment and other items allowing them to expand their youth outreach programmes.
The closing date for submitting Expressions will be the 10th February 2017. Applicants successful at this stage will be invited to submit full proposals between the 6th march and 31st March 2017.
