Postcode Local Trust

Grants from £500 to £20,000

1st round funding applications close 10 February

The Postcode Local Trust has changed its funding themes and application process for 2017. The Trust has introduced a two stage application process. Expressions of Interest are currently being accepted for the first round.

This year, the Trust will provide short-term, designated funding for good causes across Great Britain which benefit wildlife, enhance biodiversity, or renovate/create new green habitats. Consideration will also be given to sustainable energy projects benefitting local areas.

Grants range from £500 to £20,000 for those in Scotland and England and up to £10,000 for those in Wales.

The funding is to be used for activities, such as:

  • Enhancing outdoor spaces
  • Local, biodiversity improvements or habitat restoration
  • Outdoor education projects delivered with local communities by environmental charities
  • Green Energy projects which create more sustainable solutions to lowering, eg, energy costs in a community centre
  • Solar panel, wind turbine or micro-hydro schemes
  • Cultural heritage of an area (stories, exhibitions)
  • Volunteering initiatives that help local projects, local areas and local people through, for example, uniform youth organisations.
