As part of the re-structure work we underwent last year, we transformed the way our social value fund works. As a result, in October last year our partner organisations would have received their first social value dividend payment- a lump-sum payment given based on your throughput with us in the previous 12 months.
We know how popular the Suits, Boots and Bits project was to a number of you and your customers, so have reformed this project separately as Launchpad. Launchpad is a fund of £10,000 and will support a range of activities, from paying to help community groups set up and become established, to providing a helping hand for individual’s looking to move into the workplace.
One of our core values is to work together so we can have an impact on our region, creating opportunities and positive outcomes for people in our communities and we feel the continuation of this project helps us do just that.
For more information, please see our video. You can apply for money from the fund by requesting a form from our team. Alternatively, if you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch- we’d be happy to help.
