People’s Postcode Trust – 2016 Grants

People’s Postcode Trust exists to try to make the world a better place through short-term, designated funding for projects that focus on the prevention of poverty, support healthy living initiatives and uphold human rights for some of society’s most vulnerable groups. It will also consider projects which help different communities come together for the benefit of their local area.

People’s Postcode Trust seeks to help find real solutions to tackling the root causes of poverty and its consequences, by, for example, equipping people with the skills, knowledge and resources that they need to lift themselves out of poverty. Poverty prevention can focus on relieving other needs, such as needs associated with ethnicity, geography, gender, age, disability, educational and skills attainment.
