From Lauren Baillie:
We have made our first four ‘Try it’ awards of £500 through the Social Enterprise project and are excited to support more projects amongst our students, staff and graduates! The awards were made to these individuals for them to progress their projects by carrying out market research. The projects will hopefully show potential and we may be able to award a further £5000 to begin making the project work longer term. If you have an idea for a project which you would like to discuss further please get in touch with me at email@example.com. The project is open to staff, students and graduates (up to one year from graduation.) Download Guidance notes.Download Application Form
Project ideas included a Goalball centre to support the sport locally and nationally, a charitable donation lottery to support charities with a smaller turnover, a student bid writing enterprise empowering students to write sport related bids and a media initiative to support vulnerable groups through raised awareness.
