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 ask charitable organisations across Great Britain to think big and collaborate with other not-for-profit partners to deliver their dream project from 2015-2017

This year's Dream Fund is the biggest Dream Fund yet with a total award fund of £1 million to be given to two winning projects.
