In 2021-2022 The Social Enterprise Support Fund will provide essential financial support to help social enterprises in England to rebuild and grow their income from trading, following the impact of COVID-19. The fund is focused on social enterprises supporting people facing increased social and economic challenges as a result of the pandemic. We will support them in evolving and growing sustainable community services, in the face of ongoing disruption.
The Social Enterprise Support Fund is a two-year project, again being delivered by five social enterprises support agencies: Big Issue Invest, Key Fund, Resonance, the School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) and UnLtd, in partnership with The National Lottery Community Fund.
They will jointly deliver £16.3m in grants of between £10,000 and £100,000 to help social enterprises achieve these aims.
The fund reopens for applications from Monday 28 February to Thursday 24 March. It provides grants to help social enterprises rebuild from COVID-19. It is established in partnership by The National Lottery Community Fund and five social enterprise support agencies.
