During February, local charities and community groups in Gower have the opportunity to apply for between £500 and £20,000 from the People’s Postcode Lottery.
Rebecca Evans AM, Assembly Member for Gower, said: “Community groups often tell me of the big difference that a relatively small amount of grant funding can make. On 14th February, the latest funding rounds for the People’s Postcode Trust, Postcode Local Trust and Postcode Community Trust will open for applications, and I know that there will be groups in Gower which could benefit.”
There are three funds.
The People’s Postcode Trust is seeking applications for projects that focus on the prevention of poverty, promotion of human rights and equal rights. www.postcodetrust.org.uk
The Postcode Local Trust supports community gardens, play areas, wildlife and green energy projects. www.postcodelocaltrust.org.uk
The Postcode Community Trust focuses on grass-roots sports, arts, recreation and healthy living programmes. www.postcodecommunitytrust.org.uk
Since 2009, the People’s Postcode Trust has awarded more than £14m to over 1,800 projects across Great Britain. In 2017 alone, the People’s Postcode Trust awarded just over £3.2 million to over 230 organisations working to make a difference for people across the country.
Applications can be made until 28th February.
