Thanks to Power to Change investing £3 million into the Community Shares Booster programme over the next five years, local groups needing an extra boost to set up or grow a community business can access up to £10,000 to help community share offers. They will then receive a further £100,000 in match funding when the share offer goes live.
The Community Shares Booster Programme supports and stimulates public involvement with community shares offers in England, particularly in more disadvantaged areas and sectors where community businesses are under represented. To find out more about the programme, email Community Shares
