Community Business Trade Up Programme, deadline 11th Oct 2017 (1pm)

26 July 2017

This programme helps the leaders of community businesses and community-focused social enterprises in England, with:

  • A fully-funded learning programme: 12 days spread over six months
  • A grant of up to £10,000
  • A community of people running organisations like yours

There is no cost to you at any point.

We’re looking for community businesses who want to grow by increasing their sales (trading).

A community business is run by and for a local community. Its profits are reinvested for the benefit of that community. Your organisation must be committed to and working towards these criteria:

  • Locally rooted
  • Accountable to the local community;
  • Trading for the benefit of the local community;
  • Making a broad community

Your community business must be at an early-stage: it will have already started, and will have plans to grow its trading (income from sales) by at least £10,000 in the next year.
