Fresh Ideas Fund to relaunch in February!


The Fresh Ideas Fund is relaunching on 6 February 2017, the Fund aims to enable voluntary, community and social enterprises in the North East of England to explore opportunities to develop new earned income streams in order to improve long term sustainability.

The fund will provide organisations with grants of up to £40,000 to develop the ideas. Organisations may have plans to take on a new asset or develop an existing one, develop new social enterprises, support more beneficiaries, spread their work into their neighbouring town or work with completely new clients or like-minded organisations. All projects must meet the aim of growing income to provide long term sustainability for the organisation.

Applying to the Fresh Ideas Fund is a three stage process:

Stage one opens 6 February 2017 until 3 April 2017
Stage two opens 2 May 2017 until 30 June 2017
Stage three will take place in late September 2017.
