As part of the Social Enterprise Exchange programme, South Yorkshire’s Community Foundation is managing a small grants scheme to support start-up and existing social enterprises.

Grants of £1000 to £1,500 are available to start-up and early stage social enterprises. Grants of up to £5,000 are available to social enterprises that have been trading for at least 12 months.

Applicants to the Social Enterprise Exchange grants scheme must first register with Social Enterprise Exchange at and, if eligible, will be assigned to one of our enterprise advisors who can provide additional guidance on grant applications.

The latest grants round closed on 24 June 2021.

Information on the next round will be available here shortly.
