Power to Change and Co-operatives UK, supported by the Mayor of London, has launched a new funding pilot designed to boost the capital’s high streets and civic centres, by growing London’s social economy and community business sector.

Boosting Community Business London is aimed at supporting existing community organisations to become community businesses, supporting grassroots innovation across the capital. The programme is designed to equip both nascent and existing community organisations with the knowledge to refine their business and governance models and take the next steps in successfully raising alternative finance, such as community shares.

Launch dates: Boosting Community Business London is now open for community organisations that would like to take the next step to become a community business and closes on Friday 19 February.

For community businesses looking to take the next step in community shares, the programme opens on Friday 2 April and closes on Monday 12 April.
