Small Project Grants
Small Project Grants
Postcode Community Trust’s Small Projects Grants Programme allows charities and not-for-profit organisations to apply for between £500-£20,000 of funding – delivering projects up to one year in length.
Launched in 2015, the programme has since made 484 awards totalling over £3.8 million across England, Scotland & Wales.
Some examples of successful Small Project Grants cases include:
Autism Spectrum Connections Cymru
Autism Spectrum Connections Cymru is a Welsh charity providing services for people with Autism Spectrum Conditions, their families and carers in Wales.
In 2015 they were awarded £9,143 towards their 21 High Street project - a one stop shop for people and families affected by autism, based in Cardiff.
The project aims to raise the skills and aspirations in individuals needed before they are ready to successfully enter the job market/ or indeed just to live fulfilling lives.
Funding from Postcode Communtiy Trust allowed them to purchase IT, music and film equipment. Service users were then able to access the IT facilities for basic services such as job searching & CV-writing, whilst the film and music resources allowed them to learn new skills and express themselves through creative arts. This supported a number of new interests, including: an E magazine group; a Film making group; a Music Group; a Focussed film production and Animation Group.
Denis Law Legacy Trust & Judy Murray's Tennis on the Road
2016 saw Postcode Community Trust fund an exciting unitiative in the Aberdeen area. Delivered in in conjunction with Judy Murray's Tennis on the Road, Denis Law Legacy Trust's Streetsport were awarded £12,200 to support the StreetTennis partnership.
Streetsport has a proven record of reducing antisocial behavior on average by 44% in areas they deploy into.
Working in some of the most deprived areas of Aberdeen and the surrounding North-East region, the project aims to help develop and enhance the life skills of participants - by delivering motivational tennis provision and volunteering opportunities.
To support this initiative to get young and disavantaged people involved in physical excercise, funds contributed to the costs of a volunteer coordinator and electric van.
The Legacy Rainbow House
Legacy Rainbow House are a local charity that changes the lives of children and young people with physical disability caused by neurological conditions and brain injury in Ormskirk and the surrounding Lancashire region.
£17,000 of funding allowed them to install and co-ordinate a modern, interactive Sensory Room which can be accessed by the children and families of The Legacy Rainbow House as well as other children suffering with disability.
Using the latest sensory equipment, they will aim to help develop key life skills including vocalization, gross motor skills, colour recognition and tracking.
Tailored family and group sessions also allow children and families to learn new skills and develop new ways to stimulate the children - making a real difference to their quality of life.
