Charities and community groups from across England are being encouraged to apply for a share of a massive £3million to bring their dream project to life thanks to support from players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

The Dream Fund encourages collaboration between charities and good causes by bringing them together to apply for funding for their dream project.

This year’s prize fund is the largest ever, with a top award of £1.5 million. Funding from the scheme will be offered over three years from 2020.

The Dream Fund has invested more than £12 million in 29 projects across Britain.

Postcode Dream Trust is encouraging applications to Dream Fund 2020 from projects which seek to achieve systemic change by addressing an important social or environmental problem through innovation and collaboration.

Laura Chow, Head of Charities at People’s Postcode Lottery, said: “This announcement marks the start of an exciting process which will see £3 million raised by our players awarded to truly inspirational projects.

“The Dream Fund has made a remarkable difference to so many projects over the last nine years, and I have no doubt that we’ll see many more bold and courageous ideas submitted this year. Good luck to all the applicants.”

Applications for the Dream Fund can be made until Tuesday 15 October. Winners will be announced in March 2020. Please visit Postcode Dream Trust for details.
