Power to Change has teamed up with Crowdfunder to launch Community Business Crowdmatch to support new or existing community businesses responding to the Covid-19 crisis.
The scheme will help community businesses, providing services or activities which help local people experiencing disproportionate challenge and difficulty as a result of the crisis, by match-funding for each £1 raised, to a maximum of £10,000.
Through this fund Power to Change are particularly keen to support new and existing projects in more deprived areas of the country, and to work with Black, Asian and ethnically diverse individuals and community business leaders across England. Funding could be used to support new ideas to help local neighbourhoods, help meet increased demand, save a community space or bridge a funding gap.
Applications can be made at any time until all the funding has been awarded.
