Charities and community groups are being encouraged to apply for their share of a massive £3 million funding pot.

The People’s Postcode Lottery’s Dream Fund is looking for groups to apply for funding to bring their project to life. 

It encourages collaboration between charities and good causes, bringing them together to apply for funding to finance their dream scheme – an idea they have always wanted to deliver but never had the opportunity to develop. 

Funding from the project, now in its eighth year, will be offered over two years from 2018.

This year’s prize fund is the largest ever with a top award of £1m and a total award fund of £3m.

To date the Dream Fund has invested more than £7.3m 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. 

Postcode Dream Trust is encouraging applications to Dream Fund 2018 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.     

Clara Govier, head of charities at People’s Postcode Lottery, said: “I am proud that players of People’s Postcode Lottery will be awarding an impressive £3m to winners of the 2018 Dream Fund.

“The Dream Fund is one the highlights of the People’s Postcode Lottery charity calendar and we are always excited to see the bold and courageous ideas submitted. If you’ve got an idea or a project that you think is a little bit different then this is the funding opportunity for you. Good luck to all applicants.”   

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