Keighley Socialights with UNLTD

Out in the Aire

Social entrepreneurs are improving their local communities up and down the UK, working hard to respond to specific challenges in their areas. In a new partnership, UnLtd, Local Trust and 19 Big Local areas will be working together to accelerate social enterprise and increase local job creation over a three-year co-funded support programme.

The 19 areas taking part span a wide range of communities, including rural areas, new towns, market towns, suburbs and cities. All of them are part of the Big Local programme, a unique initiative that provides £1m and a package of support to each of 150 areas in England. Each of the areas put forward a proposal to UnLtd outlining their ambition to strengthen local social enterprise, and the selection panel also drew on UnLtd’s energy index, which measures social entrepreneurial activity in a neighbourhood.

Keighley Big Local is one of the areas and we are making available £50,000 grants to new, emerging and existing Social Enterprise.

Our Keighley Social-lights programme is providing

• Grants up to £5000
• 2.5 Year old dedicated support from Unltd Mentor
• Development of Mutual Support network
• National training calendar of learning clusters supported by Local Trust
