Dormant Accounts NI Fund

Link to funder for full information

The Dormant Accounts Fund NI will support scout grops in Northern Ireland to be more resilient and prepared for the future by funding activity that increases capacity and sustainability.

Dormant accounts are UK bank and building society accounts that have been untouched for 15 or more years, and where banks and building societies are unable to trace the customer who owns the account. Around £20 million has built up over the past ten years which will continue to be released each year to support capacity-building and increase resilience and sustainability in the Northern Ireland VCSE sector.

This is a rolling fund (no end date).  Groups are encouraged to take their time in developing an idea which will best fit their needs for the future.

Funders anticipate that the award for funding will be for between one and three years, in order to have the greatest impact for the organisations and the communities they serve.
