Dreams Come True awarded Lottery funding to establish a new Volunteer Network

National children’s charity Dreams Come True has been awarded a £10,000 grant from the Big Lottery Fund to establish and develop a new volunteer network across the UK. 

Based in Liphook, Hampshire, the charity operates at a national level, making dreams come true for children and young people living with a serious or life-limiting condition.

The grant will help Dreams Come True to recruit, train and support new groups of volunteers to raise awareness of the charity’s services; help generate more referrals from local families; and establish and manage their own local community events.

The project will provide personal development opportunities to a diverse range of people, equipping them with new experiences and skills, including those who might not normally feel confident in volunteering.

Volunteer Coordinator, Claire Smith, explained how the grant would greatly benefit the charity: “We are thrilled to receive this grant from the Big Lottery Fund.  As we are a small charity, volunteer supporters will make a huge difference in enabling us to reach more families and young people throughout the UK.”   

It is anticipated that volunteer groups will be established across all regions, including West Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire.
