UKSPF Capacity Building

About the scheme

The scheme will support locally-led groups and social enterprises to increase their sustainability and their ability to get involved in asset-based projects.  Support will be targeted to the individual organisation and will include skills development in bid writing, business planning, property management and advice on governance structure.

The aim of the project is to increase organisational capacity ultimately enabling them to use assets to increase sustainability whilst providing spaces for locally beneficial activities and economic activity.  The project will also support the creation of social enterprises, including the transition of locally-led groups into social enterprise status.

It will be delivered by Raise Partnership who have extensive experience in capacity building for organisations and locally-led regeneration projects.  The programme is open to organisations throughout North Somerset. To find out more please contact
