National Lottery – Dormant Accounts Fund – Funding programmes

The Dormant Accounts Fund will be used to increase capacity, resilience and sustainability in the Northern Ireland Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sector.

Under Section 22 of the Dormant Bank and Building Society Accounts Act 2008, National Lottery will distribute money under direction from the Department of Finance to increase capacity, resilience and sustainability in the Northern Ireland Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sector.

These funds are not derived from National Lottery activity.

To ensure this funding has maximum impact in communities across Northern Ireland, National Lottery is now consulting with the sector, with a view to opening the fund in early 2020.
