Funding // Community Business: Share Booster Programme


Power to Change has launched a new funding programme which offers development grants and/or equity match up to the value of £10,000 to community businesses with charitable purposes. Community businesses must be planning to make, or have recently launched, community share offers.

Power to Change defines community business as having the following four key features:

  • locally rooted
  • operating for the benefit of the community with broad community impact
  • accountable to the local community
  • with trading at the heart of its business, for the benefit of the local community

For guidance notes on how to apply and the Expression of Interest form can be found on the Power to Change website.

There are no deadlines and expressions of interest can be made from December 2017 until December 2020.
