In July 2019, we invited charities, social enterprises or anyone interested in starting a venture with a social purpose to an open consultation on support for social enterprises.
The event is part of a new social investment fund that our team has been invited to lead on. Access (The Foundation for Social Investment) and Big Society Capital invited twelve cities to submit a proposal to their ten-year £33m programme of support for charities and social enterprises. Bradford is one of the cities Access and Big Society Capital have identified as being of significant interest. Five cities will be selected, meaning Bradford could access £6m to build resilience and provoke some innovation. We believe the programme could be a game changer for our social enterprise scene and the community and voluntary sectors.
