The Community Shares Booster programme, managed by Power to Change, has re-opened.
Applications are invited from community businesses in the process of setting up and launching a community shares offer that can demonstrate high levels of community impact, innovation and engagement. The programme aims to support these businesses by matching the amount they raise with an equity investment, made on equal terms with other community shareholders. Development grants are also available to help societies get investment ready and meet standards of good practice. Applications are particularly welcome from areas in greater need (in the top 30 per cent of Index of Multiple Deprivation).
Up to £100,000 investment / up to £10,000 grant. Community businesses.
