New funding boost from Benefact Trust
We are delighted to be working alongside Benefact Trust, to provide the resources & grants to help new community businesses to thrive in places of worship.
This new programme of support, worth £200,000 and funded by Benefact Trust over two years, will provide specialist support and bespoke advice to Christian places of worship throughout the UK.
One of the biggest challenges facing community businesses is the lack of suitable premises. There are already examples of successful community-owned businesses operating out of spaces within places of worship – but there is tremendous potential for more.
Benefact Trust is one of the UK’s largest grant-making charities and gave £17.8 million to churches, charities and communities in 2019. Its funds come from its ownership of Ecclesiastical Insurance Group
