Impact Readiness Fund

A new £1.5 million pilot fund managed by the Social Investment Business for the Cabinet Office will offer grants and support to social ventures to understand and improve their social impact and demonstrate improvements to investors and commissioners.

Grants between £15,000 and £150,000 will be available until late January 2015 to help ventures build infrastructure and skills required to manage their performance, increase their social impact, and attract social investment / win contracts.

Social ventures will be required to work with one of the fund’s approved support providers to develop a programme of impact readiness work and submit an application.

For more information please visit the Social Investment Business website. Application details will be available w/c 17 November.
