    Who Can Apply?

    UK-based Black-led charities and social enterprises working in communities across the UK will be able to apply for unrestricted grants of £5,000 or £12,500 to help them:

    • Get better informed about their options (moving to new methods of delivery) post-COVID19
    • Develop new enterprising activities and earned income strategies
    • Test the viability of specific propositions
    • Develop clear implementable action plans for such activity
