The Social Enterprise Support Fund is reopened on the 28th February, offering grants between £10k – £100k.
The fund’s aim is to support social entrepreneurs in England to get their social enterprises back on track, and particularly those working with communities that are recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Social Enterprise Support Fund is being delivered through partners UnLtd, The School for Social Entrepreneurs, Resonance, Big Issue Invest and Key Fund, made possible by the National Lottery Community Fund.
The partners are working towards a benchmark of more than 50% of grantees across the fund being disabled and / or from a Black, Asian or minority ethnic background. They are also particularly encouraging applications from enterprises led by those with direct lived experience of the social issues they are trying to solve.
The second round is live from 1pm on the 28th February and will close for new applications and submissions on 24th March. You are advised to start your application early so that you have plenty of time to get it just right and access any support that you might need.
