Community Shares Booster Programme

The Community Shares Booster programme matches the investment raised through community share issues to increase take-up in areas of disadvantage and in under-represented sectors.

The Community Shares Booster Programme supports and stimulates public involvement with community share offers in England, particularly in more disadvantaged areas and sectors where community businesses are under-represented.

Through the programme, your community group or business could receive a business development support grant up to £10,000 in advance of launching your community share offer. After that, your organisation could have access to up to £100,000 match funding in the form of an equity investment by Co-operatives UK when the share offer goes live.

It is important to show that you meet Power to Change's definition of a community business, so have a look at the information here.
