The People’s Postcode Community Trust was established in 2014 to support marginalised groups in obtaining the skills and resources to effect change in their own communities. The Trust operates its own society lottery and receives all of its funding from players of People's Postcode Lottery.

The Trust provides short-term, designated funding for new projects, or significant expansions of existing projects, in Great Britain.

In 2019, the funding is for projects in Great Britain of up to 12 months in length that relate to the following themes:

  • Improving community health and wellbeing.

  • Arts and physical recreation

  • Reducing isolation.

Grants range from £500 to £20,000. Only registered charities can apply for grants of up to £20,000. The maximum grant for groups that are not formally registered as a charity is £2,000.

There is a two-stage application process.
