The new £20m Community Fund for post offices is now open for applications. All subpostmasters who are designated as community branches under the Network Transformation programme – typically post offices or outreach services which are the ‘last shop in the village’ – are eligible to apply and have been informed by Post Office Ltd about the fund.
The fund can be used for a wide range of improvements and will run until 2018. Applications to the fund must demonstrate how the works undertaken will benefit the overall profitability of the business, and improve customers’ experience.
