The Community Shares Booster programme reopens today!

Power to Change is investing £3 million into the Community Shares Booster programme over the next five years.  If you're a local group needing an extra boost to set up or grow a community business, you can now access up to £10,000 to help launch your community share offer and up to £100,000 match funding when the share offer goes live.

Community shares enable local people to invest often small sums of money in a local project, and in so doing become a co-owners of vital community businesses- from affordable housing to community pubs to green energy. It is also a fantastic way for community businesses to raise the funds to get a project off the ground.

Groups can apply to the programme now and also sign up to a FAQs webinar on Wednesday 13 December 2017.
