Enterprise Grants

By September 27, 2018Funding Opportunities

What is the Fund?

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.

They are available through the Enterprise Development Programme, a five year, £40m programme funded by Access – The Foundation for Social Investment and managed by a coalition of partners.

Who is it for?

Initially the programme will be aimed at charities and social enterprises based in England that operate in the following fields:

  • Homelessness
  • 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.
