SEI is open for applications

We’re delighted to launch our national call for applications 2021. We’re inviting everyone to “see the challenge, be the change” by applying for a place on our Ideas Academy – aimed at those with an early-stage idea to solve a social problem, or the Impact Programme – aimed at high-potential social entrepreneurs looking to grow their impact.
We’re looking for people across the country with innovative ideas to solve social problems – people with courage, insight and ambition to put forward a solution to a social problem, and act on it. Watch our short video to find out more.

About Our Programmes

Up to 60 places are available on the Ideas Academy, made up of 15 social entrepreneur-led projects across four groups (two groups in the East, one group in the West, and one group in the South). This three-month programme will provide participants with the support and direction they need as they take the first steps from idea to action.
