The Community Business Trade up Programme - Drop-In Session!


Are you running a community business – an organisation that directly benefits your local area through trading? Do you want to increase your impact and trading income? Then the Community Business Trade Up programme could be for you!

The programme is run by the School for Social Entrepreneurs, in partnership with Power to Change. It helps the leaders of community businesses and community-focused social enterprises in England, with:

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

If you have any questions about the programme or the application process before the application deadline, we’re running a drop-in session on Monday, 4 February between 2.00 pm and 4.00 pm. Click on the link to book a place.

If you have any queries, please see our website for more details or contact us (by email or on 01962 857380).

To find out more about the programme and the application process go to the SSE website; that’s also the place to submit your application. The deadline for applications has been extended to 12 noon on 18 February.
