Community Shares Booster relaunches, and hits £200m milestone

We’re really pleased to share the announcement that the Community Shares Booster Fund has relaunched this week in England with new investment from Power to Change.

And not only that, the Community Shares market has hit an amazing milestone of £200m raised through Community Shares. Fantastic news!

We are incredibly proud to be involved in the Community Shares Booster Fund which supports new and existing community businesses in England that are at all stages of a community share issue. Support is available through development grants, matched equity up to £25k, and where relevant specialist business development support is available.

Whether you are at the earliest of early stages of exploring if it’s the right choice, through to planning a community share issue,  being ready to launch, or in exceptional cases, recently launched – the Fund can help.

Paperwork and info has been updated – have a look at the new fund guidance and a new application process

Not sure whether to apply, or if it’s right for you? There’s a webinar coming up on the 8th June – book your place here to ask any and all questions.
