Margot James is encouraging social enterprises in Stourbridge to bid for funding from the newly created Community Enterprise and Innovation Fund at Dudley Council. The fund, which is aimed at supporting people looking to set up social enterprises, is worth £250,000 and a successful bidder could receive up to £10,000.
Margot said: “I would urge all social enterprises, existing and potential, to consider bidding for this funding. It represents an excellent opportunity for community businesses to raise funds and benefit from business mentoring and support”.
