Investing for Growth Fund

This support programme is delivered by the Key Fund and aims to increase the number of social enterprises in the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority area that are ready for growth, and can access the finance that they need to do so.

Part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), via the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), this is a £3.3m project which will close on 30 June 2023.

Funds can be between £5k - £25k and is focused on existing organisations based and/or substantially operating in Doncaster, Barnsley, Bassetlaw, Rotherham and Sheffield, who are looking to grow their trading activity.

In terms of support, eligible organisations can access some or all of the following:

  • One to one growth support – business plan review and feedback, financial model analysis etc
  • One to many growth support – workshops and masterclasses
  • Growth grants – for capital expenditure from £5k to £25k

Contact Investment Manager, Rachel Veitch-Straw, who can walk you through the criteria, and provide you with the necessary business support you need both pre and post investment to ensure you are set up properly.
