Share this article

UnLtd and Social Firms Wales have partnered to find, fund, and deliver support to social entrepreneurs in Wales, with a focus on those from marginalised backgrounds.

Recognising that the Covid-19 pandemic has entrenched already pronounced inequalities in Wales, Ecwiti aims to help those most affected. It is funded by the Welsh Government. It will work towards the outcomes set out in Transforming Wales through Social Enterprise, a 10 year vision to see social enterprise adopted as a business model of choice.

Between them the partners will offer around £120,000 in funding and support to a range of impactful social ventures to start, sustain and/or scale their businesses.

In Wales, disabled people, Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, and people living in poverty (rural and urban) are all disproportionally affected by the pandemic. Between December 2021 and March 2023 UnLtd & Social Firms Wales will be looking to fund social entrepreneurs in Wales who:

–       live or work in areas with high poverty rates

–       are Black, Asian and/or from a minority ethnic background

–       are disabled

–       have direct lived experience of the social issues they are setting out to solve

Social entrepreneurs can find out more about the support on offer at: unltd.org.uk/awards – grants of up to £5000 or £15000 are available

Apply via the UnLtd Portal 

Application forms in Welsh can be requested by emailing: [email protected]
