Enterprise Grants will support charities and social enterprises in England working in either the homelessness or youth sector to develop or grow their enterprising activity and earned income.
Initially the programme will be aimed at charities and social enterprises based in England that operate in the following fields:
• Youth services
What can I apply for?
Feasibility Grants – Between £5,000 - 10,000 to enable organisations to investigate and develop an enterprise proposition from the very earliest stage into a proposed delivery plan.
Development Grants – More substantial grants of around £50,000 available for organisations that have an enterprise proposition which requires further development or scaling and where there is a potential requirement for subsequent investment
Am I eligible?
This programme is open to organisations that:
• Are charities or social enterprises
• Are based and work in England
• Have a desire to generate income through enterprise
• Can demonstrate clear social impact
• Work in either the homelessness or youth services sector
A Twitter Q&A, using the tag #ReadyforEnterprise will be held on Tuesday 2 October 2018, from 12pm-2pm when Social Investment Business, School for Social Entrepreneurs and Access will be on hand to answer any questions.
The grants programme will be open on a rolling basis and it is expected to continue to be open for applications until June 2019 but the exact date will depend on levels of demand for grants.
