Unsuccessful Application

Organisations can apply to Postcode Places Trust twice per year. We have three funding rounds in the year for the trust. Our round dates for 2024 are: 

Round 1: 25th March 9am to 1st April 12 noon

Round 2: 24th June 9am to 1st July 12 noon

Round 3: 24th September 9am to 1st October 12 noon

Applicants will receive feedback on areas where they can strengthen their application. However, it’s important to note that taking on feedback doesn't guarantee success in future applications. Some very strong applications are still unfortunately unsuccessful to the high volume of applications we receive.

We are often oversubscribed with high quality applications, meaning that you may be unsuccessful even if your application was strong. We appreciate this may be frustrating. How we prioritise applications when oversubscribed is explained on Page 3 of our funding guide.

All applications are initially assessed by our staff team. Applications then go through our due diligence assessment which is mainly carried out by our partner Brevio. Once this has been completed, applications are reviewed by a trustee funding panel who then approve which organisations will receive funding. All funding decisions are final.

We appreciate that it can be disappointing to receive the news that your application was unsuccessful. If you have a question that you feel was not answered by the FAQs, you can contact us via email at info@postcodeplacestrust.org.uk.

We hope that the feedback provided on your previous application will be helpful. If you require more clarity on feedback you have received or require more support in advance of applying again, you are welcome to contact the trust via email at info@postcodeplacestrust.org.uk.
