Steve McCabe MP encourages Local Charities to apply for up to £20,000 of funding

Steve McCabe MP (Selly Oak, Birmingham) is encouraging local charities and good causes to apply for funding that has been raised by the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Applications are open from 6 February until 20 February, where causes ranging from social enterprises, voluntary groups to registered charities are eligible to apply for grants of between £500 and £20,000.

The financial support is available through three different trusts that are all funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery with the sole purpose of supporting people and their communities across Great Britain. Each trust supports projects focussed on specific themes:

• People’s Postcode Trust looks to fund projects that are aimed at promoting human rights, combatting discrimination and the prevention of poverty
• Postcode Community Trust supports initiatives working to improve the health and wellbeing of communities, including arts and physical recreation projects, as well as those with a focus on reducing isolation
• Postcode Local Trust want to hear from groups working on flood prevention measures and those looking to implement renewable energy strategies. They also want your application if you’re dedicated to improving outdoor space, whether that’s a play park, a skate park or something else.

For more information, to view the funding guides and to apply please visit the trusts’ websites directly:

Steve said:
“Funding from People’s Postcode Lottery players makes a huge difference to thousands of good causes across the country every year. I know that there are many charitable organisations in my constituency that are in need of extra funding to pay for projects, especially at a time where cash boosts are difficult to come by. I hope many groups will take advantage of these great funding opportunities and apply.”
