The Enterprise Development Programme is a five year programme, funded by Access – The Foundation for Social Investment and managed by a coalition of partners. The programme aims to provide a broad range of support for charities and social enterprises in England, helping them become more financially resilient by developing new enterprise models, or by growing existing ones.

The programme has offered tailored support to organisations that are thinking of exploring new models of trading to help them become more financially resilient and who require support to make the transition. Organisations work collaboratively with sector leads; Homeless Link, Centre for Youth Impact, Association of Mental Health Providers and Equally Ours, throughout the programme journey. Social Investment Business will help to administer the programme.

We have taken a collaborative and thoughtful approach to this offering and have aimed to create a cohort of sector-based organisations who are interested in exploring enterprise activity and potential revenue models in their respective sectors.
