  • providing impactful services to people and communities that are in acute need due to cost-of-living pressures
  • experiencing financial difficulty as a result of rising running costs in their own financial model

Funded by Access – The Foundation for Social Investment, eligible organisations are invited to apply for between £1,000 and £10,000 to sustain the provision of essential community services and boost organisational sustainability. As part of their award, recipients will receive a grant and enterprising activity support delivered by GMCVO to help increase their trading activity and resilience.
