The Social Economy Growth Fund will enable the third sector/social economy to improve and increase services and support for people experiencing poverty and disadvantage. It will enable social economy organisations to grow their capacity for example by creating new/expanding existing services and employing additional staff. The Fund will support organisations with a proven track record of working successfully with individuals and families who experience disadvantage, poverty and social exclusion.
The Social Economy Growth Fund is supported by the European Social Fund (ESF) and the Scottish Government. The Scottish Government will provide match funding for the Fund 'at source'.
