Charities are at the heart of People’s Postcode Lottery, they are what we are all about and the reason we exist. Our network of supported charities includes thousands of good causes, big and small, throughout Britain and beyond. The funds raised by players are awarded to 20 grant-giving trusts and directly support 32 national charities.
The charities team manage the allocation of funding and partnerships with charities from those operating internationally to those at a local and grass-root level. As well as building long-lasting charity partnerships, the team also manage the relationship with each trust’s board of trustees and support funding applications.
Will Humpington, Climate Change and Environmental Programmes Advisor, Charities
I advise and manage the environmental charities that sit within our charitable trusts. I oversee these charities and assess potential new beneficiaries, as well as advising senior management and trustees on sector trends, emerging themes and governance.
I enjoy the variety of my role, which includes engaging the business on sustainability issues, determining the role of the organisation and our charity family towards safeguarding the planet, and meeting the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
It is important for me to work for a mission driven organisation that is doing good for people and planet, so it is a joy to work alongside such dedicated and committed team members. People’s Postcode Lottery has a very fun and friendly atmosphere where professional excellence is encouraged and rewarded.
