Bid for impact with Impact for Growth

The Access Foundation’s Impact Management programme aims to build the capacity of charities and social enterprises to manage their impact, in order to improve their outcomes and diversify income.

Mutual Ventures is an approved provider on the Impact for Growth strand of the programme. This is for charities and social enterprises that are seeking to raise investments or contracts. It includes training, grant funding and support to help develop impact management systems required to meet the needs of investors or commissioners.

In total, £1.8m of grant funding is available, with up to £50k for each organisation. This is to be used to work with an approved partner consultancy, such as Mutual Ventures.

How do I know if I am eligible?

To check your eligibility and find out more, you can visit the Impact Management Programme website and register your interest here.

Eligible charities and social enterprises are required to attend a free one day impact management training session. After this, they can then apply for a grant to develop a project that will improve systems and process.

What support can Mutual Ventures provide?
