Integrated Community Solutions CIC – “Social Business Initiative (Derbyshire)” 2015/16 – Big Lottery Awards for All

ICS-CIC is delighted to announce that following on from our very successful “Social Business Initiative” project in Nottinghamshire the Big Lottery ‘Awards for All’ Fund has again very kindly agreed to fund a similar project in Derbyshire over the next 12 months.

This project will enable ICS-CIC to help establish and support the creation of up to 10 brand new social enterprise Community Interest Companies in some of the most disadvantaged communities in the county and city. Many of these communities are former coalfield or industrial areas where the historic industries have long since gone so are in need of more ‘grassroots’ or ‘Peer to Peer’ support to improve their local economies and create employment opportunities.
