People’s Postcode Lottery redesigns website to make funding process easier

Grantmaking charity the People’s Postcode Trust has redeveloped its website in an effort to simplify the process.

Funded by the players of People’s Postcode Lottery, the Trust has so far given over £3.2 million to 628 projects across Great Britain, in grants ranging from £500 up to £100,000. The organisation supports community group projects, especially those with limited resources and capability, as well as registered charities.

Clara Govier, Head of Charities for People’s Postcode Lottery, explained the changes on the website. “We understand”, she said, “the funding landscape can often present itself as a complicated minefield, with excessive jargon and cumbersome application forms… As well as offering a simple two step application process, our new website offers enhanced search functionality.

“Now applicants can scour our project database to help them understand the types of projects we routinely support – thereby increasing their likelihood of a successful application. We’re also hopeful that these improvements will help to open up new funding opportunities to groups who have never applied to us before”.

The standard application process for projects under £10,000 is currently open. The deadline for applications is 5pm on 24 February 2012.
