Investing in women as a force for social change
Enabling social ventures and communities to flourish through enterprise and innovation
We support people with great ideas to create the change they see needed in their communities.
We work directly with social entrepreneurs (budding and established), innovators and leaders – developing networks, assets and resources to enable communities to become socially active and economically empowered.
We also deliver commissioned programmes and collaborative cross-sector partnerships to enable change makers access the support they need to flourish and develop their communities.
“We invest our surplus resources in supporting women as a force for social change and wider social enterprise activity, in particular helping women who have faced setbacks help vulnerable and marginalised communities.”Nickala
