Longer processing time during the summer

04 Jul 2022

During the summer months, the processing time for new project applications is unfortunately longer than normal.

The summer holidays make it difficult for the Swedish Postcode Foundation to process project applications at a regular pace. Please allow for a longer wait before hearing back from us after submitting an application. Operations will resume – and return to normal – by the end of August.

Good Health and Well-Being

19 Jun 2018

The fourth and final area of focus that the Swedish Postcode Foundation has chosen for 2018 is Health and Well-Being.

There are specifically two areas that are of interest to us. Mental health, since the number of people affected by various mental disorders is on the rise in Sweden. As part of this initiative, we launched a call for proposal in May, themed “Mental Health through Life”, where Swedish local organizations were able to apply up to 200 000 SEK for various projects. The response was positive and we received 179 applications that we are currently assessing. However, this focus is not solely directed to local initiatives, we remain interested in receiving larger projects that promote mental health.

Lack of access to clean water and sanitation is a major issue throughout the world and it has a direct impact on health problems. Although some developments have been made, however, there are still major challenges to overcome. Therefore, we have decided to focus on initiatives that promote access to clean water and sanitation internationally.

We look forward to receiving your solutions to tackle these issues.
