The Social Investment Business (SIB) have launched the Enterprise Development Fund. Organisations can apply for up to £50k to support them to develop a trading venture.

Who is it for?

Organisations that are thinking of exploring new models of trading to help them become more financially resilient and require financial or business support to make the transition.

Initially the programme is aimed at organisations that operate in the following fields of untapped enterprise development:

  • Homelessness
  • Youth services

The grants programme will be open on a rolling basis and we expect that it will continue to be open for applications until June 2019 but the exact date will depend on levels of demand for grants.

Oxfordshire Youth highly recommend applying to this fund. The process is very professional and accessible, the support team at SIB are really helpful throughout the application process. Plus as UK Youth (our national body) are a lead partner in this, Oxfordshire Youth members can access further support for this application. Please get in touch for more information.
