The Post Office is unique: a commercial business set apart by its public purpose
The £20m Community Branch Fund – for Post Offices with no other suitable retailer within half a mile – is now open for applications. These Post Office branches or Outreach and Satellite services play a particularly vital role in the local community. The Community Branch Fund offers investment for subpostmasters to support the growth of their Post Office business and help to underpin the long term viability of their business.
The Community Branch Fund forms part of the wider Network Transformation programme that is bringing benefits to customers and subpostmasters across the branch network. As a community branch subpostmaster you can choose to remain on your existing contract, including keeping your fixed pay as well as benefitting from investment. The fund can be used for a wide range of improvements such as changing the branch format to open plan, new signage, or gearing up for new services such as Click & Collect. Funding is also available for Outreach and Satellite services.
You are encouraged to apply for funding by completing the simple application form on this site. If you have any questions about the Community Branch Fund or would like to talk to someone about your ideas, please call the Network Transformation helpline on 0845 266 8790.
