Power to Change

Watch out for new schemes around support for social businesses. The Big Lottery Fund has set up an agency called Power to Change which aims to:

  • Provide funding and support which enables the successful development of many more community businesses.
  • Help to transform places and communities in partnership with local people.
  • Gather evidence, promote learning and raise awareness of the social and economic improvements which are generated by community businesses.
  • Encourage others in the public, private and voluntary sectors and in the wider public to support community businesses.
  • Explore new models and understand the best environments for community businesses to scale and expand in order to increase their overall impact.
