Grants are now available for churches interested in hosting a community business. The Benefact Trust and Plunkett Foundation are launching a new programme to provide the resources & grants to help new community businesses to thrive in places of worship.
This new programme of support, worth £200,000 and funded by Benefact Trust over two years, will provide specialist support and bespoke advice to Christian places of worship throughout the UK.
One of the biggest challenges facing community businesses is the lack of suitable premises. There are already examples of successful community-owned businesses operating out of spaces within places of worship and this programme will help others to take this step.
The Plunkett Foundation can provide more information about the support available and can be contacted via their website here or call 0845 5571469.
Focus of fund/fund aims:
A programme of support for churches interested in hosting a community business. The support now includes grant funding from the Benefact Trust.
