Power to Change uses most of its endowment to directly support community businesses. We distribute our funding through open and targeted programmes, to help new community businesses start up and existing ones be more resilient. Find out more about our Programmes.

We encourage and welcome applications from community businesses from all backgrounds, who meet our grant requirements, and who are looking to make a real difference to the lives of their local communities.

Each programme has its own set of criteria so please read our guidance before applying. If you’re not sure which programme is for you, of if you are a community business, check out our diagnostic tool which suggests relevant programmes by which stage you’re at.

The best way to keep up to date with funding rounds is by signing up to our newsletter.
