Up to £20,000 funding is available for local groups in Milton Keynes

    Local charities and good causes are being encouraged to apply for up to £20,000 funding for their organisation.

    The funding boost has been launched by the People's Postcode Lottery, with organisations being able to apply for grants between £500 and £20,000.

    There are four trusts available, with each trust supporting projects that focus on different themes. These themes vary from the expansion of services, improving health and wellbeing in communities to improving biodiversity.

    Postcode Neighbourhood Trust will help good causes affected by COVID-19. It is suitable for groups looking to adapt or expand services, or to increase their resilience.

    People’s Postcode Trust funds projects aimed at promoting human rights, combatting discrimination and helping to prevent poverty.

    Postcode Community Trust supports initiatives working to improve health and wellbeing in communities, including those that look to reduce isolation. The Trust also supports projects that increase participation in arts and physical recreation.

    Postcode Local Trust is for groups looking to increase community access to outdoor space and improve biodiversity. Groups looking to improve sustainability or combat climate change are also encouraged to apply. 

    Nearly £7m will be awarded in grants so organisations are encouraged to take an eligibility quiz on each trust website to find out if they can benefit from this funding. 

    Applications open on Tuesday (4/8) and will close on Wednesday 19th August.
