The People’s Postcode Lottery has announced that it will open a £3m fund for community projects next month. 

Between 1 August and 15 August charities and community groups will be able to apply for grants of between £500 and £20,000 from the fund.

Funding is available through three trusts which focus on different areas. 

  • People’s Postcode Trust supports projects aimed at promoting human rights, employability and combatting poverty
  • Postcode Community Trust focuses on initiatives that benefit communities through the delivery of grass-roots health and wellbeing programmes
  • Postcode Local Trust looks for applications that aim to improve biodiversity and outdoor spaces. 

People’s Postcode Lottery manages multiple society lotteries and a minimum of 32 per cent of the price of each ticket goes to good causes.

This is the second round of funding this year and over 350 projects were awarded funding in the last round.
