Small Good Stuff grant winners announced
We are pleased to announce our grant winners, following the launch of two grant programmes for Small Good Stuff members last month.
Small Good Stuff members run tiny community organisations or groups that offer help and care for others – we call these very small ventures community enterprises. In total, 40 of these amazing community enterprises are set to benefit from our grant programmes, with £19,288 of funding given away as part of our ethos and social enterprise business model to support the sector and reinvest back into the wider community.
