Postcode Local Trust

Postcode Local Trust was established in 2015 to provide financial support for charities and good causes which help communities enhance their natural environment in a way that benefits the wider community.

In 2016, the Trust will invite applications that encourage lasting benefits by bringing people together to improve local ecology and habitats, encourage bio-diversity and benefit the wider environment.

Registered charities* in England, Scotland & Wales can apply from £500 - £20,000 (£10,000 in Wales) for projects meeting the above remit, whilst other organisations may apply for up to £2,000.

(*Please note that in order to apply for over £2,000 you must hold a current registration number with either the Charity Commission for England & Wales and/or the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR))

·         5th Jan – 28th Jan 2016

·         1st Sep – 30th Sep 2016

Applicants will usually hear back around 10 weeks from the closing date of applications.

Examples of eligible projects would include: community gardens and growing spaces; habitat creation/preservation; outdoor, wildlife and environmental education; the creation of new green spaces; outdoor and path access improvements; community energy initiatives (e.g. solar panels for community-owned/charity buildings, micro-hydro schemes etc).
