Second round of Impact Readiness Fund open
The Government has announced £1.5m in funding for a second round of the Impact Readiness Fund.
The first IRF round, worth £2m and launched in October 2014, supported 51 social enterprises. The second round of the IRF will make grants of between £25,000 and £100,000 available.
Social Investment Business manages the fund. Grants aim to help ventures build the infrastructure and skills required to manage their performance, increase their social impact, and attract social investment or win contracts.
