The Grow It Award is for social entrepreneurs looking to grow their venture, make a bigger difference and become sustainable.

You are running a social venture that is already making a positive difference to people’s lives. You have compelling evidence of your impact. You might want to continue to grow to achieve your ambitions, or want further support to make sure your idea is financially sustainable.

This award is designed to help you to get to the next stage. It gives you up to £15,000 to help you grow, as well as expert, tailored advice to help you to achieve your ambitions. Alongside the funding, you get a unique package of support including one-to-one coaching from a dedicated award manager (one of our local experts in supporting social entrepreneurs), training, mentoring and access to networks of other passionate people doing good.

Over the next three years UnLtd has committed to three focus areas where we believe social entrepreneurs can make a big impact. These areas are:

  • Building access to employment.
  • Developing resilient communities.
  • Solutions for an ageing society.

Expressions of Interest to be received on or before 11th November 2019, Final submission date for application documents 6th January 2020 with Final decision meeting week commencing 24th February 2020.
