The Investment and Contract Readiness Fund will offer grants of between 50,000 and 150,000 to purchase specialised investment and contract readiness support and to cover some of the costs of putting the investment or contract readiness plan into action in the social venture itself. 

Specialist support from an approved investment and contract readiness provider with a track record in supporting social ventures to secure social investment will be a significant proportion of what the fund offers. 


We want to make around 130 awards over the lifetime of the Fund.
