Social Entrepreneurs Fund on hold until further notice

Due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, Firstport are temporarily suspending the Social Entrepreneurs Fund. This is to allow us to focus on the Third Force Resilience Fund, and ensure that the third sector remains supported during this time.

Don’t worry, we are still offering our business support, and continuing to support those who are current awardees.

What does this mean for you?

  • If you are one of our current awardees, we’re still here for you. If you need any support during this time please email your relationship managers to see what help we can offer.
  • If you are looking for start-up funding, our Start-It and Build-It funds are now closed. However, we are hoping that they will re-open later on in the year.
  • If you are looking for business support, we still have this available for start-up social enterprises, check out our business support page to find out more.

Other places to find support:

  • Just Enterprise have a wide range of support available for social enterprises during this pandemic.
  • SCVO have developed an extensive Information Hub which is there to keep you up to date with all support and funding available at this time.
