Fund description:

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. There is a total of £3,500,000 available for ambitious, collaborative projects. Charities can apply for up to £1,250,000 to deliver a project in 2022-2025.

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

The new funding themes this year are:

  • Environment/Conservation
  • Social inequality
  • Pandemic recovery

Projects must be innovative, creative and original, and be a genuine ‘dream’.

Applications must come from a partnership of at least two charitable organisations. The lead partner must be a registered charity. The other partners can be registered charities, voluntary groups, community interest companies, universities or other not-for-profit organisations.

Local authorities and other public-sector bodies are not eligible to participate.
