Dormant Accounts Fund
You may be aware that the Prime Minister has announced how the Big Lottery Fund is developing a programme to help young people overcome barriers to employment.
This announcement launches an engagement phase which will put young people and stakeholders at the centre of designing a £90 million programme to help tackle barriers to employment. Big Lottery Fund are working jointly with colleagues from DCMS, DfE and DWP to learn from what young people and organisations tell them and to develop the different options. They expect ministers to issue a policy direction to the Big Lottery Fund about what the programme should focus on and what it should achieve in summer 2018. Big Lottery will then engage in a further period of co-design on the specifics of the programme.
As the next part of this engagement phase Big Lottery Fund are now conducting a Stakeholder Survey. You can take part in the survey here.
