Earlier this year, we offered £1 million in grants to social enterprises and trading charities that employ people from disadvantaged or vulnerable groups.
These organisations have been particularly hard hit by the coronavirus pandemic. In many cases, they have suffered a severe loss of trading income and many have had to shut down vital support services.
We wanted to bridge the revenue gap so that they could continue to deliver positive impact in their communities.
We received almost 400 applications but after some very tough decisions, we are delighted to announce the winners.
