SE-Assist - is an innovative scheme to support social enterprises that are part of communities, contributing to local economic regeneration. The scheme is funded and delivered through a partnership between Legal & General, Charities Aid Foundation (CAF), Croydon Council and the Coast To Capital Local Economic Partnership (C2C LEP).
Social enterprises are a key element of the future economy. SE-Assist delivers support to social enterprises that have clear opportunities for success, but require additional support that is not available elsewhere. SE-Assist provides a blended package of support for social enterprises in Sussex and Croydon, which will include interest free loans, mentoring and access to expert business advice.
Successful social enterprises will receive a support package which includes:
- an interest free loan of between £10,000 and £30,000;
- a Legal & General employee as a mentor; and
- access to a bank of experts
Applications are now open.
