The Peoples Postcode Trust Small Grants Programme is now open again for applications. You can be awarded anything from £500 and £250,000 for good causes.
They fund things like:
- Purchase of capital items
- Creation of community gardens/allotments
- Purchase and/or installation of energy saving devices/equipment
- Workshops that provide tangible results (such as qualifications or skills)
- Conservation of wildlife and habitats
- Diversionary projects for youths
But if you have a good idea that is not covered in this list, it is still worth calling them to find out if your project may be considered.
There are four funding rounds in 2014 and their opening and closing dates are April 5th and May 20th 2014 for organisations from the South East.
Reading Council has community event participation grants of upto £200 and general community grants of upto £500 for environmental based activities. We are awaiting deadlines for grant applications in the new financial year 2014/2015.
