The social welfare charity Catch22 has opened applications for a £448,000, two-year programme to develop and support social entrepreneurs.
The Incubate, Accelerate, Amplify programme will focus on people with early-stage ideas connected to Catch22’s areas of focus: education, employment, justice, social care and citizenship.
Catch22 is looking for five people to join the programme and is accepting applications until 22 March.
Each participant will be offered a salary of £30,000 for the first year, plus a support package that will include strategic, financial, partnerships, fundraising and communications help.
The National Lottery Community Fund has provided £448,000 in grant funding for the programme over the next two years.
Chris Wright, chief executive of Catch22, said: "We can’t change things for the better standing alone. We need new ideas, new leaders and new ways of working together.
"Support doesn’t have to be financial. There are lots of other assets we can share with you: infrastructure, scale, networks, contracts, credibility. It just takes imagination."
