Postcode Dream Trust - Postcode Recovery Fund

Aims/priorities: The funding is for impactful and original projects that can demonstrate a clear link to the effects of the pandemic across the following six funding priority areas:

  • Educational inequalities
  • Homelessness
  • Domestic Violence
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Social exclusion and isolation
  • Poverty

Applications where there are other clear benefits to the community will also be considered.

Projects must:

  • Take place in Great Britain.
  • Are addressing a systemic issue related to the effects of pandemic.
  • Are innovative and attempting to break new ground.
  • Leave a significant and tangible legacy after one year.

Who can apply? Applications will be considered from:

  • Charities in Great Britain, i.e. organisations who are registered charities with official charity numbers (i.e. registered with the Charity Commission or with OSCR).
  • Charities who have an annual income at least twice the amount that is being applied for (i.e. if applying for £500,000 then the lead applicant must have an income of at least £1 million and if applying for £1 million then the lead applicant must have an income of at least £2 million as evidenced by their latest audited accounts).

Grant amount: Grants of between £500,000 and £1 million are available.

Application process: The criteria, guidance notes and application form can be found on the Postcode Dream Fund website.

There is a three-stage application process.

  • Stage 1 will open for charities to submit the high level details of their project and the problems they are trying to solve.
