Community Business Trade Up Programme

Are you running a community business – an organisation that trades for the benefit of your local area? Do you want to increase your impact and sales?

Action Hampshire are hosting the Community Business Trade Up Programme, run by School for Social Entrepreneurs, in partnership with Power to Change. Applications are open now & the deadline is 1pm Wednesday 27 November.

This programme helps the leaders of community businesses in England, with:

A fully-funded learning programme: 12 days spread over nine months
A Match Trading grant of up to £10,000
A community of people running organisations like yours
You can find further information on what a community business is and the programme at

To help you decide if the programme is right for you we recommend attending an information session. The sessions are informal and friendly and will give you a great insight into what to expect from the School for Social Entrepreneurs. At the information session you will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as the opportunity to meet other community business leaders in your area.

Book a place on the session at Astolat in Guildford on Tuesday 19 November:
