Funding for social entrepreneurs
To encourage social entrepreneurship locally, we have created Made in Tang Hall in partnership with UnLtd, a group which provides funding and support for enterprising people with solutions to social problems, which can change society for the better.
Tang Hall Big Local have given £50,000 over three years to Made in Tang Hall via UnLtd, to fund social entrepreneurs who want to address social issues relevant to the people who live in Tang Hall. UnLtd will support individuals who want to address social issues throughout their journey. Support is provided by a dedicated Awards Manager, who will help you to think through your idea, create a plan, apply for a grant, and deliver your project. There are several types of grant available, from small grants to test ideas, to much larger ones, to scale up your business and really start making a difference.
Tang Hall Big Local hope to build a lasting legacy. We believe that local people deserve a great future, and we want to nurture local talent. Tang Hall Big Local and Made in Tang Hall can help you to do this and ensure there is great support and opportunity for learning and development.
UnLtd’s previous work with Local Trust has demonstrated that social entrepreneurs and the ventures they run create real benefit for local residents. Local social entrepreneurs can create services that really fit local needs because they live there too. For example, you can read about how social entrepreneur Rachella Sinclair has helped build community markets and local enterprise in Noel Park Big Local or how Sam Delaney’s social enterprise is helping recovering drug and alcohol users in North Cleethorpes Big Local, or visit the Tang Hall Smart website, to see what Tang Hall’s first successful UnLtd social enterprise!
