  • Firstport - Social Innovation Challenge

    Created: 19/04/2023, Updated: 21/04/2023

    Firstport's Social Innovation Challenge is a programme that funds and supports innovators to kick-start solutions that tackle some of the most pressing challenges of our time. The 2023 theme is focused on issues connected with the rising cost of living.

    Funders are looking to support new social enterprise ideas for removing the deep-rooted obstacles that prevent individuals and communities from living fulfilling and dignified lives, particularly in light of the current, well-publicised rise in the cost of living.

    Who can apply

    • Established social enterprises
    • Unincorporated groups or community associations
    • Individuals with an idea for a new project

    How to apply

    Submit an expression of interest on the Firstport website. You will be invited to pitch your idea to a panel if shortlisted.

    When to apply

    Applications close at 12:00 on 31 July 2023.
