8.2 Organisation details

Applications are open to new and existing community businesses based in England. You must be an independent legal entity, not subject to local authority influence or control. It is expected that most applicants will already be registered as societies, although in exceptional circumstances, conversion to a society can form part of the development process funded by the Booster Programme. If you are an established organisation that has been active for two or more years, we request that you submit a copy of your most recent annual accounts and report.

We want the contact details of the person who will represent your community business. We also need the address and postcode of your community business. We will us the postcode to access relevant statistics and data about your local area to help us understand the needs of the communities your business serves. We will use data from this open data source.
