The Growth strand is for charities and social enterprises that are seeking to raise investments or contracts.

It includes training, grant funding and support to help organisations develop impact management systems required to meet the needs of investors or commissioners.

What’s the process?

Eligible charities and social enterprises must first attend a free one day impact management training session. After this, you can then apply for a grant - working with an approved supplier to develop a project that will improve your systems and process. We have a £1.8m grant fund available and expect to distribute up to 50 grants over the two year programme.


What’s the timing?

The first training sessions are running in February and March 2017 and applications for the pilot round of grants are open from 3 February 2017 until midday Monday 10 April 2017. We expect to distribute 10 grants at this stage, with the main round of grants distributed in Q4 2017. 

Please note that you have to work with an approved supplier to submit a Growth grant application.
