Power to Change Booster fund

In November 2020 we launched the ReBoost fund. This helps all types of community businesses to prepare a community share offer, to support their recovery from COVID-19. 

What support is available?

  • Development grants – up to £5,000 to prepare a community share offer: financial planning, governance support, marketing costs and being awarded the Community Shares Standard Mark.
  • Match equity investment – typically matching pound for pound up to £25,000 invested by the Booster Programme, providing that the minimum share offer target is achieved.

To find out more, sign up to the webinar on the 13 November 2020 at 10am.

Please read the Guidance Notes for the ReBoost fund before applying.
