The Dormant Accounts Fund NI is now open. This programme will support the VCSE sector in Northern Ireland to be more resilient and prepared for the future by funding activity that increases long term capacity and sustainability.
It is being delivered by The National Lottery Community Fund.
Around £20 million is currently available and money will continue to be released to distribute each year. Given that this is a rolling fund, a phased and long-term approach is being taken to support the sector that will be based on learning.
As part of the first phase, organisations can now apply for grants of £100,000 to support activity that improves long-term capacity, sustainability or resilience to best deliver their mission. There is no closing date, so organisations are being encouraged to take their time and carefully consider what activity they need to do in the long term to build their capacity, resilience and sustainability.
