Golden Thread Gallery is delighted to be able to share the news that we have been awarded funding from the Dormant Accounts Fund NI.

We are one of 18 organisations from the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector in Northern Ireland who are benefitting from over £1.3 million from the Dormant Accounts Fund NI. Delivered by The National Lottery Community Fund in conjunction with the Department of Finance, the programme is supporting the sector to be more resilient and prepared for the long-term future. Read more here.

This grant will help us to continue the Gallery’s development and improve our financial resilience.

Dormant accounts are UK bank and building society accounts that have been untouched for 15 or more years, where customers who own the accounts cannot be traced. As part of this first phase of Dormant Accounts Fund NI support, organisations could apply for up to £100,000 as part of a flexible and responsive grant programme.

We are very grateful to The National Lottery Community Fund Northern Ireland and the Department of Finance for this support!
