We’re thrilled to have been selected for Big Society Capital’s Ideas for Impact programme, working in partnership with two fantastic organisations – Catch 22 and Hatch Enterprise.
Over the coming months, we’ll be working together to develop a programme and fund to support organisations in creating solutions to tackle youth unemployment. Together we will help them to grow their impact and revenues by accessing public sector contracting opportunities.
Social Tech Trust CEO, Ed Evans said, “We’re delighted to be working together with Big Society Capital to test new ways of supporting and investing in organisations with solutions that can help tackle the youth unemployment crisis. As we’ve seen over the past year, partnerships rooted in solidarity and a vision for a positive future are critical if we are to drive much-needed change.”
The Ideas for Impact programme aims to identify ideas to tackle social issues which have the potential to take on social investment as a way to scale and support multiple organisations through an investment fund. Social Tech Trust, Catch 22 and Hatch Enterprise are amongst seven winning teams to receive funding and support to develop their idea for impact.
