A £3million funding pot is being opened up to application from UK charities from the People’s Postcode Lottery’s Dream Fund.

The Dream Fund encourages collaboration between charities and good causes, and now, in its eighth year will be offered over two years. This year’s prize fund is an award of £1million and a total award fund of £3million.

Postcode Dream Trust is encouraging applications from projects that fit within one or more of the charitable purposes which include: supporting families; improving people’s lives through animals; green communities and increasing life chances for young people.

The People’s Postcode Lottery’s parent company is the Dutch firm Novamedia, a social enterprise that raises structural funds and awareness for good causes. To date the Dream Fund has invested more than £7.3 Million in 24 projects with previous winners including Heritage Heroes, a joint project between Canal & River Trust and Help for Heroes, and Missing People’s ‘Child Rescue Alert’.

Applications for the Dream Fund are open from 14 July until 22 August - details are here. Winners will be announced in January, 2018.
