Pioneering fund provides critical financial & business support for social enterprises in Wales

According to the South Wales Argus, social enterprises in Wales now have the opportunity to apply for a package of finance and support aimed at transforming their business as well as supporting their local community.

Successful applicants will be offered an interest free loan of between £10,000 and £30,000, mentoring from corporate supporters and access to a bank of experts.

The multi-award-winning Social Enterprise Assist (SE-Assist) scheme, first piloted in Brighton & Hove in 2012, connects local social enterprises with larger companies in the local area and as a result injects prosperity into local communities.

Leading insurer and Welsh employer Legal & General has provided the funding to help social enterprises get off the ground, thrive and drive regeneration in Wales.

Founding partners the Welsh Co-operative, Business in the Community Cymru, the Institute of Directors, and the Charities Aid Foundation have joined forces to develop and launch SE-Assist in Wales.
