A limited number of grants are available to support black (and Mixed with Black) social
entrepreneurs and change-makers making a difference in their local communities in the UK.
There are 25 grants available of between £1,000 and £3,000.
The funding for this scheme comes from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
The fund is administered by Do It Now Now, an open innovation organisation driven by the desire to bring social empowerment to Black Communities across the globe.
Grants are available to support Black-led social enterprises and charities in the UK, so they are
able to survive and thrive, even during the coronavirus/COVID-19 crisis.
The fund aims to help its grantees:
• Get better informed about their options (moving to new methods of delivery) post
• Develop new enterprising activities and earned income strategies.
• Test the viability of specific propositions.
• Develop clear, implementable action plans for such activity.
The deadline for applications is 31 August 2020 (7pm).
