Congratulations on receiving your grant!

As part of your grant, we ask you to use this logo where you can.

Displaying the logo will show people who benefit from your work that you've received funding through the Dormant Accounts Fund NI. Only projects that have been awarded a grant can use this logo, so we hope you will see it as a recognition of your success.

You should use this logo on any materials you produce, like posters or leaflets. You should also show it on your website and social media if you have them.

Please use the logo exactly as it is - we've designed the logo to work as a single piece of artwork. Please do not alter or remove any part of it, including changing the colours, or cropping the white space around the logo.

Formats

It is available in two file formats. We recommend the ‘JPEG’ format for most day-to-day uses, including for Word documents, websites or social media.

We've also provided an ‘EPS’ format, sometimes referred to as a ‘vector’ file. This file will only work in professional design software, and should be used for large-scale print and merchandise (like banners, pop-up stands, large vehicle stickers).

We want the logo to be readable and recognisable. So please make sure that it's not smaller than 30mm in height on any printed material. If you use it on your website, make sure it's large enough to be clearly legible. It should also never be stretched or distorted.

DRAFT Notes to Editors:

Dormant accounts are defined in the Dormant Bank and Building Society Accounts Act 2008 as those which have seen no customer-initiated activity for at least 15 years.

Under the Dormant Bank and Building Society Accounts Act 2008, the Reclaim Fund releases funds from dormant bank accounts to the National Lottery Community Fund for distribution to good causes across the UK.

The Reclaim Fund Ltd. (RFL), which was established in March 2011 to receive and invest dormant account balances across the UK, transferred the first tranche of monies from dormant bank and building society accounts to the National Lottery Community Fund on 2 August 2011.

The National Lottery Community Fund are the largest community funder in the UK awarding money, raised by National Lottery players, to local communities. Since June 2004, we have made over 200,000 grants and awarded over £9 billion to projects that have benefited millions of people.

We are passionate about funding great ideas that matter to communities and make a difference to people’s lives. At the heart of everything we do is the belief that when people are in the lead, communities thrive.
