Enterprise Development Programme: Environment Funding Round Open

The ENVIRONMENT round of the Enterprise Development Programme (EDP) from Social Investment Business (SIB) is open for applications from social enterprises and charities.

This environment round is delivered in partnership with Groundwork, the national partner for this sector. They can help to explain the programme, support you with applications to join it, and have a key role in helping successful applicants to progress their ideas and grow their enterprise activity.

The programme will be aimed at supporting Environmental not-for-profit (NFP), voluntary or community organisations (including registered charities/companies) whose primary purpose is to deliver environmental programmes and projects.  There is an expetation that organisations will vary in size, environmental focus and enterprise type. These will range from environmental conservation charities, Community growing CIC’s, community energy partnerships, Reuse and Recycle projects.

It is expected that organisations applying are already delivering activity which has the ability to become a business enterprise. They should also be able to clearly show, senior management support for the application, planning, and sustainability.

SIB and Groundwork take a collaborative and participatory approach in programme design. By applying to the programme you are not simply applying for a grant, but instead are applying to be part of a cohort of like-minded organisations that will learn together.
