Are you a community business looking to trade up?

Community Business Trade Up

Cornwall School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE Cornwall) are looking to support 10 community businesses through the Community Business Trade Up Programme, in partnership with Power to Change.

They are looking for people leading the organisations that put their local area at the very heart of what they do: the restaurants, community centres, bakeries, farms, sports clubs and pubs that are run by and for local people (to mention just a few!).

Applications for the programme are now open! You can book onto an awareness session to find out more…

The programme supports the leaders of early-stage community businesses with:

·      a fully funded six-month learning programme (consisting of 12 learning days)

·      a grant of up to £10,000

The learning programme runs from January to July 2018. Its focus is to grow community businesses’ impact by increasing their sales and trading income. Participants will receive expert support and learn with other community business leaders in cohorts of 10.

It’s a great opportunity for community-focused organisations in Cornwall looking to grow, find out more here
