The Hopkins Plunkett Communities Scheme
The Hopkins Plunkett Communities Scheme is still available to provide free support and expertise from the charity’s central support service and network of advisors. Guidance is provided on issues ranging from governance, cash flow advice, business planning, volunteer recruitment, management, accessing funding and navigating government support schemes.
The funding will also provide a series of training events and workshops aiming to inspire diversification and improve business resilience.
In addition, £10,000 of the fund will be ring-fenced specifically to provide specialist support to communities seeking to set up a new community-run pub.
Applications for individual grants are now closed but applications for support and training will be available until 31st March 2022.
