Funded by Big Lottery Fund in association with Power to Change.

Date: Monday 29 September, 10am – 4.30pm

Location: St Thomas Centre, Ardwick Green North, Manchester, M12 6FZ

Book: Complete the form to book your free place

You will get to hear from social entrepreneurs and experts who have run successful community enterprises. You can get help and support from a range of organisations through a range of fantastic workshops and one-to-one advice to help you progress your enterprising ideas.

You will also get to hear more about Power to Change, a £150m Big Lottery funded initiative, backed by Trinity Mirror and the National Lottery, set to open later this year that will support community-led enterprise across England.

Find out more about our Power to Change support for community enterprises and the other Power to Change Roadshow dates.

Community enterprises are about people coming together to tackle a local need and making their community a better place to live. It’s about creating something that makes a positive difference to the local community and can stand on its own two feet in the long run.

This could mean stopping your local library, community centre, pub or shop from closing by taking over responsibility for running it. Or it could mean setting up a new enterprise that improves opportunities for local people and re-invests profits back into the community.

Power to Change will be open for applications later this year when details of how to apply will be made available. Visit www.biglotteryfund.org/powertochange for more information and to get your project on the map.

The Big Lottery Fund has contracted Locality, the Plunkett Foundation and UnLtd to inspire and support community-led enterprises ahead of the launch of the Power to Change Trust later this year. This support will provide community enterprises with expertise and guidance to develop their plans but is not a guarantee of future funding from Power to Change.
