In October we were awarded funding from Social Enterprise Support Fund, distributed by UnLtd. 

This funding has been vital in allowing us to remain open during the COVID pandemic by helping us cover our overheads and offer funded activity to members of our community that have bee adversely effected by the pandemic. 

Thanks to National Lottery players for making this possible.

The Social Enterprise Support Fund provides essential financial support to help social enterprises during COVID-19. It will help social enterprises to meet additional demands, change the way they work, make their spaces COVID-secure, and manage liquidity during the next six months.

The Social Enterprise Support Fund was established in partnership by The National Lottery Community Fund and five social enterprise support agencies: Big Issue Invest, The Key Fund, Resonance, the School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) and UnLtd with support from CAF Venturesome, the Young Foundation and Ashoka.

 Thanks to National Lottery players, £18.7 million of National Lottery funding has been committed to the fund to be used to provide grants to social enterprise organisations that are best placed to support local, vulnerable communities in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
