Thanks to generous support from players of the People’s Postcode Lottery, our network of over 200 local groups is equipped with the resources and support they need to roll out effective campaigns on the issues that affect their communities. Whether that’s access to green space, clean air or warm homes for all – we're there to support them through every stage of their campaign.
