Scottish charities to cash in on dormant money

The Scottish Government has begun consulting on how it will spend money collected from dormant bank accounts.

The money will be distributed by the Big Lottery Fund, which could have as much as £40m to spend in the first year, and about £4m a year thereafter.

The process began last week with seminar hosted by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations, involving the Big Lottery Fund, umbrella bodies and the voluntary sector networks.

The seminar will be followed by public events, an online web survey and a consultation exercise. Full details will be announced shortly.
