    Firstport have opened Expressions of Interest for the 2023 Social Innovation Challenge.

    The Social Innovation Challenge 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. This edition will be 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 rising cost of living. More information on the criteria and eligibility can be found at the Firstport website

    The challenge winner will receive a £50,000 grant to help them implement their solution. All shortlisted applicants will receive a package of tailored support.

    This opportunity will close for applications on 31 July 2023 at 12:00pm.
