The People’s Postcode Lottery Dream Fund

The People’s Postcode Lottery Dream Fund is a new initiative developed
by the People’s Postcode Trust team to give organisations the chance
to deliver the project they have always dreamed of, but never had the
opportunity to bring to life.

In order to meet the challenges facing the charity and voluntary
sector, the fund encourages applications that will address the key
strategic concepts of collaboration of organisations to provide more
efficient services, and the promotion of volunteers.

The Dream Fund will offer £600,000 over two years, with £300,000
available for 2011, and £300,000 for 2012. Registered charities and
community organisations in Scotland can apply for up to £100,000 to
deliver a new and innovative 12-month project. Read the Dream Fund
page to get all of the details.
