Dream Fund 2020 Launches

Community groups and charities can now apply to bring their dream project to life
Make Fashion Circular, a Dream Fund winner in 2019, aims to create garments from safe, renewable materials

Britain's charities and community groups are being encouraged to apply for a share of a massive £3 Million to bring their dream project to life - thanks to support from players of People's Postcode Lottery.

Launching today, 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 pot is the largest ever, with a top award of £1.5 Million. Funding from the scheme will be offered over three years from 2020.  

Encouraging Collaboration

The Dream Fund has already invested more than £12 Million in 29 projects across Britain, with previous winners including Search Dog Heroes, a joint project between Missing People and Lowland Rescue, and Make Fashion Circular, an initiative developed by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation with the Royal Society for the Arts. 

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."

Find out more about applications for the Dream Fund, which can be made until Tuesday 15th October. Winners will be announced in March 2020.
