Power to Change - Community Business Bright Ideas Fund Round 4

Power to Change, the independent trust supporting community businesses in England, has announced that Round 4 of their Community Business Bright Ideas Fund is now open.

The Community Business Bright Ideas Fund offers a package of business development support, start-up funding up to £15k and peer-mentoring opportunities to communities who want to get a business idea off the ground.

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: 12am 31st July 2018

Organisations can start to prepare their applications from today by visiting Power to Change’s website, downloading the guidance for applicants and signing up to their newsletter to be kept informed.

Power to Change has previously supported a community energy scheme re-using cooking oil from local residents to generate electricity and power local buses.

Power to Change will also host a webinar on 18th June 2018 to give hopeful applicants an overview of the fund and its eligibility criteria. This is also a great opportunity for community businesses to ask any questions they might have about the application process. Register for the webinar here.

Locality, Power to Change’s grant partner for the Bright Ideas Fund, can answer any questions applicants have about this fund via email at brightideas@locality.org.uk.
