The Postcode Trusts are all supported by players of the People's Postcode Lottery. They contribute to a wide range of charities and good causes working across a number of different thematic and geographic areas including care, culture, education, arts, environment, human rights, equality, health, sport and animal welfare.

People's Postcode Lottery started as a small pilot project in 2005 and today, 68% of British postcodes play and over £750m has been raised for 9,000 charities and good causes. The Postcode Trusts each now distribute between £2.5m and £14m per year.
