People's Postcode Trust - small grants programme open for 2nd round

02.09.16

The Trust wants to make the world a better place through short-term funding for projects that help to prevent poverty, support healthy living initiatives and uphold human rights for some of society’s most vulnerable groups. It will also consider projects which help different communities come together for better understanding and community relations.

The Trust offers funding to help organisations find real solutions to tackling the root causes of poverty and its long-term consequences by, for example, helping people gain the skills, knowledge and resources they need to lift themselves out of poverty. Poverty prevention can focus on relieving other needs, such as those associated with ethnicity, geography, gender and lack of educational and skills development.

Grants range from £500 to £20,000. The programme is open to grassroots organisations, local charities and non-profit community businesses that are seeking to effect positive change within their local area. applications must be in by 5.00pm on 30 September.
