Power to Change are here to support community businesses in England as they face this unprecedented global crisis at a local level. We will continue to make the case for community businesses to a crucial role in the economic and social recovery of the country.
We have launched the second stage of our emergency support, the Community Business Renewal Initiative, a package of support for community businesses, in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
The support package includes the £3million Community Business Renewal Fund, providing unrestricted grants of between £10,000 and £20,000. Working with our partners, we will also be opening two match-funding programmes to support community businesses with fundraising, as well as tailored support to help communities to protect community-owned assets.
The Renewal Initiative also includes a tailored support package to increase community business leader’s knowledge, assist with wellbeing and equip you with the skills to boost your community business.
