Funded by Access – the Foundation for Social Investment, the Enterprise Development Programme is a three-year programme that offers participants an array of tailored capacity building support along with possible funding to explore enterprise development opportunities within their own organisations.
Delivered alongside a coalition of partners, including Consortium, the programme builds financial resilience and fosters innovation across multiple charitable sectors (Equality, Homelessness, Mental Health and Youth). You can learn more about the equality strand of the programme here.
The programme will offer tailored support to organisations thinking to explore new models of trading or looking to grow existing ones. Organisations will work collaboratively with sector leads (Homeless Link, Centre for Youth Impact, Association of Mental Health Providers and Equally Ours) throughout the programme journey to best identify support needs (both learning and development and feasibility grants).
Over the next three years, Equally Ours hopes to support between 70-90 equality organisations, working with between five and six cohorts in the process.
