Unis use the info on your UCASrecord to automatically flag your application - home postcode, school you attend, or whatever their criteria is.

If that particular Uni also uses something FSM, Military Family, 16+ Bursary in addition to the obvious flags, then its worth either your referee mentioning this in your reference and/or the school emailing your Unis.You don't need to contact the Unis yourself.

They’ll usually consider you automatically with information on your app and from UCAS. Their websites should explain if you need to provide any additional information.

What information did you use to come to this result regarding your postcode, and how / where did you get it?

If you look on each University website (google "Contextial offer" and the name of the Uni) you will find the criteria they use and how you can check your postcode etc. All Unis use different criteria so don't assume that if you qualify for one Uni you will qualify for all of them. And some Unis are very coy about this and wont tell you the exact criteria they use and instead say unhelpful things like 'contextual data will be taken into consideration'.

Some examples :
Bristol - https://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/unde...extual-offers/
Manchester - https://www.manchester.ac.uk/study/u...s/eligibility/
Warwick - https://warwick.ac.uk/study/undergra...textual-offers
Newcastle - https://www.ncl.ac.uk/undergraduate/...tcode-checker/
