Awarding funds thanks to players of People's Postcode Lottery

Alternative funding opportunity 

Magic Little Grants gives smaller charities and community groups the chance to apply online for a £500 grant to deliver projects across Great Britain.

In 2022, Postcode Neighbourhood Trust will continue to work in partnership with Localgiving.

Applications open from March 16th until October 31st.

With its simple 20-minute application process and an outcome within 6 weeks, the Magic Little Grants fund reduces the work required for grass-roots organisations to access the funding they need to launch or strengthen their services.

The following criteria apply:

• Organisations must either be in their first year of operation or have an annual income under £250,000.
• Funding can be used to launch new projects, support existing ones, or cover core costs associated with ongoing work.

As well as receiving a Magic Little Grant, successful organisations that are new to Localgiving will also be given a free annual membership with Localgiving worth £96. This membership gives them access to all of Localgiving’s wider online fundraising services, such as regular fundraising campaigns, training, and governance advice.

Interested in applying?


Please note that the application process is administered entirely by Localgiving. For all enquiries, please contact Localgiving via email at

If you would like a callback, please email this address with your query as well as the best number and time for their team to get in touch with you.

Organisations who are currently in receipt of an award from players of People's Postcode Lottery are unable to apply.
