Postcode Local Trust

The Postcode Local Trust is currently inviting applications that encourage lasting benefits by bringing people together to:
o Improve local ecology and habitats:
o Encourage bio-diversity; and
o Benefit the wider environment.
Consideration will also be given to sustainable energy projects benefiting local areas.
Registered charities in England and Scotland can apply for grants of between £500 and £20,000, and those in Wales can apply for grants of between £500 and £10,000.
Grants of up to £2,000 are available to other not-for-profit organisations that do not have a registered charity number.
Funding is available for activities, such as:
• Creating community gardens to benefit local areas.
• Habitat restoration projects that benefit biodiversity and which provide lasting benefits to a community such as on-going recreation activities, flood prevention schemes, natural hedgerow boundaries.
• Tree planting or creation of community orchard projects.
• Wildflower meadow creation.
• Projects which create bird, bug and beastie homes.
• Outdoor education projects delivered with local communities by environmental charities.
• Green-energy projects which create more sustainable solutions. For example, lowering energy costs for a community.
• Micro-hydro schemes benefiting a local community.
Priority will be given to projects that are:
• Creative, far-reaching and will leave a long-term impact once completed.
• Focused on improving the environment for the benefit of local communities and encourage conservation action at a local level.
There will be two rounds of funding in 2016. Applications will be accepted during the following periods:
• 5 January 2016 to 28 January 2016.
• 1 September 2016 to 30 September 2016.
