EDINBURGH-BASED People’s Postcode Lottery has announced the launch of the Dream Fund, a £400,000 funding pot that encourages charities and organisations across the country to work together to secure vital funding.
The Dream Fund is an awards programme which offers financial support for groups looking to work together to realise the project of their ‘dreams’.
This year, trustees chose to increase the funding available by an additional £100,000 so that it can also help tackle youth unemployment.
Clara Govier, head of charities at People’s Postcode Lottery, said: “We are opening the fund again with the existing encouraging active living, bringing communities together and tackling climate change.
“However, this year we have decided to increase the support available to £400,000 to specifically help expand life opportunities available for our young people.”
