@Localgiving has teamed up with the People’s Postcode Lottery to provide environmental groups in the North West of England with the chance to develop their online fundraising capabilities.

Eligible groups will receive free membership of @Localgiving, as well as up to £500 for each group in match-funding for the donations they receive through @Localgiving.

@Localgiving differs from other platforms as it works with registered andunregistered groups, and has a staff member based in the North West to provide advice, support and training.

Eligible groups must be based or provide services in the North West of England, and be running projects which enable people to engage with the environment. This can include groups where the environmental benefit is secondary, for instance a befriending service running a gardening project.

Launched in 2009, @Localgiving has raised over £13 million for over 5,000 charities.
