• Centre for Social Action Innovation Fund

    The National Endowment for Science Technology and the Arts (NESTA) has announced that it is seeking applications through the Social Action Innovation Fund.
    This is a £14 million Fund to support the growth of innovations that mobilise people’s energy and talents to help each other, working alongside public services. Through the programme, charities, social enterprises, public services and for-profit businesses can apply for grants of between £50,000 and £500,000.
    While applicants can be established in any part of the UK, the benefits of their proposals should focus primarily or significantly on England. The Innovation Fund will focus on a small number of big social challenges. The current priority is helping unemployed people improve their skills and get back to work, including through supporting enterprise and self-employment.
    To apply organisations need to submit an Expression of Interest form by the 31st March 2014.
