Postcode Community Trust will re-open its Small Grants Programme on the 6th February 2019 for Expressions of Interest. The Trust was established in 2014 to support marginalised groups in obtaining the skills and resources to effect change in their own communities.
Grants of £500 – £20,000 are available to registered charities 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.
Other voluntary organisations e.g. sports groups, community interest companies and social enterprises can apply for up to £2,000. Full application guidelines for the new funding round are available on the website.
Previous projects supported include:
- Bierley Community Association – received funding to purchase a community minibus to help them reach isolated older people, disengaged young people and families.
- Movement for All – a community dance group for people aged 60+ in Brinsley Notts, Nottingham, were awarded funding for their ‘Dancing Together’ project in 2017.
- Skipton Extended Learning for All (SELFA) – an inclusive holiday club for primary-aged children was awarded funding to enable them to team up with the Skipton International Puppet Festival in September 2017.
The closing date for submitting Expressions to Round One will be the 20th February 2019.
Applicants successful at this stage will be invited to submit full proposals between 27th March and 10th April 2019.
