Following the successful launch of the Digbeth Social Enterprise Quarter on Thursday 12th December 2013 we are delighted to report that a successful Big Lottery Awards for All grant of £10,000 has been secured to help fund continuing development of the Quarter.
The grant will help fund new research in the Digbeth/Highgate area so that a comprehensive baseline and profile of the area can be written.
This will provide the kind of information about the area and the more than 50 social enterprises operating there that will be needed in approaching other potential funders and supporters.
iSE is working to develop the specifications for this research now.
From inception to launch to winning its first financial support in four months — pretty good going!
