From SEI

As we face unprecedented and continuous change in our society due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we know many more people want to solve social problems in their communities, but the first step is often the hardest one to take. 

Our Spark Programme is designed to make social entrepreneurship accessible to people from all backgrounds, with a particular focus on people from under-represented and marginalised communities. Through learning, engagement and funding opportunities, we hope to provide the initial spark that will set some amazing ideas alight!
