Codesigning Social Impact in Bradford

In January 2020, the Bradford Social Innovation Partnership (BSIP), an initiative led by Impact Hub Bradford, was successful in attracting a £6.6 million social investment from the Access Foundation and Big Society Capital for the Bradford District.

This funding will provide a programme of enterprise support and a mix of grants and loans over a 10-year period, directed to for the Voluntary, Charity and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector across the Bradford District.

We’re keen to co-design this programme with those who will be its beneficiaries: organisations and entrepreneurs that are or intend to deliver social impact in the district.

You can find out more about this programme,  the team, the organisations involved, the proposals we submitted to secure funding and more over at our Local Access Programme page.

Getting Involved

To be part of shaping and designing the programme with us, we’d love for you to complete a short survey (it’ll take less than 10 minutes) and later join us in a series of online codesign workshops. Here we’ll listen to and explore your needs and design a programme together, helping you, and others like you, in the Bradford District fulfil your social entrepreneurial ambitions.

Whom is the survey for?

  • Individual or organisations serving a social purpose, benefiting society (for example: a charity, community-led organisation, cooperative or social entrepreneur)
  • Individuals or organisations – with an ambition to serve a social purpose in the future (for example: a charity, community-led organisation, cooperative or social entrepreneur)
  • Are based in or deliver services in the Bradford District.

We’ll invite respondents of this survey to engage in different workshops that represent Bradford District’s diversity and invite them to join us in designing a support programme that better fits those individuals and organisations in Bradford that benefit society. Our first workshop, on Values, will take place on 22nd February.
