British charities can apply for a large grant to help them deliver the project they have always dreamt of, but never had the opportunity to bring to life.
The Dream Fund was created to encourage charities in Great Britain to collaborate so that they can deliver their dream project.
Applications must come from a partnership of at least two charitable organisations, one of which will be designated as the lead. The lead partner organisation MUST be a registered charity.
