Postcode Dream Trust 

Three Or Four Large Grants Are Available To Give British Charities The Chance To Deliver The Project They Have Always Dreamed Of, But Never Had The Opportunity To Bring To Life.

Fund Information 

Funding body: People's Postcode Lottery 

Maximum value: £ 1,500,000 

Application deadline: None specified

Who Can Apply? 

All applications must come from charities in Scotland, England, or Wales for projects to be run in these regions. Not-for-profit organisations are encouraged to collaborate to deliver a more effective and wide-ranging project. 

All applications must come from at least two organisations. The following conditions apply: 

• One of these organisations must be a registered charity, who will be considered the lead organisation for the project and will enter a contractual relationship with the Trust to deliver the project. The main grant contact must be with this organisation. 

• The supporting partners can be charities, voluntary groups, community interest companies, universities, or other not-for-profit organisations. 

• The lead partner in any application must have an annual income that is at least two times the grant amount applied for (i.e., if applying for £500,000 then the lead applicant must have an income of at least £1 million and if applying for £1.5 million then the lead applicant must have an income of at least £3 million as evidenced by their latest audited accounts).


Organisations who have previously applied for or received funding from Postcode Dream Trust are eligible to apply as long they have collaborated with at least one other organisation and adhered to all funding requirements.
