Tom Brake is asking community groups and local charities across Carshalton and Wallington to apply for possible grants of between £500 and £20,000 raised by players of the People’s Postcode Lottery.
Between 14 and 28 February 2018, charities are being urged to submit an expression of interest, which requires basic details about the organisation, as well as a very short description of the project they are proposing.
To date, hundreds of grass-roots projects across Britain have received funding from three Trusts, to the tune of over £8.2 million.
Carshalton & Wallington MP Tom Brake said:
"There are many charities already doing fantastic work across the constituency, but I have no doubt that a successful application could help one of these charities expand their existing range of services and the support they can give. I encourage as many local charities as possible to apply."
The funding is made available through three different charitable trusts depending on the type of project:
- People’s Postcode Trust seeks applications for projects that focus on the prevention of poverty, promotion of human rights and equal rights.
- Postcode Local Trust supports community gardens, play areas, wildlife and green energy projects.
- Postcode Community Trust focuses on grass-roots sports, arts, recreation and healthy living programmes.
