Local charity launches social enterprise fund

Northamptonshire Community Foundation has launched a new fund to support social enterprise initiatives that will help with the economic recovery from the pandemic.

Social enterprises based in the county can apply for up to £5,000 to help support decent work and economic growth within local communities.

The activities must benefit local residents, especially those that may be disadvantaged and vulnerable.

Groups can apply via www.ncf.uk.com with a closing date for applications of Friday 15 October.

Rachel McGrath, Deputy CEO and Grants Director of Northamptonshire Community Foundation said: “We have seen how the pandemic has massively impacted the economic and financial wellbeing of our local communities and so we are delighted to be able to launch a funding programme that will go some way to help support and contribute to local economic wellbeing and give a boost to new and existing social enterprise activity locally.”
