Proper Good

What is it?

The Proper Good programme, previously known as the Local Access Partnership, offers free-to-access business support, networking and training led by entrepreneurs who know how to run proper businesses that do good in their communities.

Individuals on the programme may also apply for social investment to grow their businesses and scale their impact. 

Hosted by GMCVO and delivered by local partners, the programme covers Bolton, Oldham, Wigan and Stockport. Local delivery partners will work you to develop your network and know-how, while the GMCVO social investment team will support you on your social investment journey.

Can I join the programme?

You can join the programme if you have a proper good idea or business that aims to make a positive difference to society, no matter what stage of the journey you are on - from start-up to scale-up.
