Postcode Dream Trust is a grant-giving body funded entirely by players of People's Postcode Lottery that supports charities who wish to deliver highly innovative, impactful and engaging projects across Britain and further afield. Postcode Dream Trust operates its own society lottery and receives all of its funding from the players of People's Postcode Lottery.

The Dream Fund is now open for applications. Partnerships of charities can apply for up to £1 million for the project they have always wanted to deliver but never had the opportunity to do so.

We have extended the deadline for applications by 10 days to September 25th at 5:30pm. 

The Dream Fund gives organisations the chance to deliver the project they have always dreamed of, but never had the opportunity to bring to life. We are asking charitable organisations across Great Britain to think big, be ambitious and collaborate with other not-for-profit partners to deliver their dream project.

Dream Fund 2017 is offering a total award fund of over £2.5 million for charitable organisations to deliver their ‘dream’ project in Great Britain (Scotland, England or Wales) in 2017-2019.

Charities will be able to apply for funding to deliver their dream project. There will be two or three awards in total. Successful projects will be announced in January 2017. Please read the guidance notes thoroughly before applying:
