In partnership with the Co Op foundation, we are running the Environmental Entrepreneurs programme for a second year – helping organisations with environmental aims to grow, become more robust and increase their impact.

Register interest in the 2021-22 programme

Do you run a social enterprise or community based organisation that delivers an environmental impact? We can help you grow and build capacity,  develop sustainability and scale your impact.

Across 8 months of support, we’ll help you to develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes you need to develop robust models and deepen environmental impact. You will be part of a safe and supportive group of like-minded peers – committed to environmental causes.

The Environmental Entrepreneurs Programme will bring together the leaders from 15 organisations working in the West Midlands, Yorkshire and North East and the North West, offering them:

  • 6 days of cohort-based learning spread over 8 months
  • 3 Action Learning Sessions
  • Group and 1-2-1 coaching
  • Support network of like-minded peers

Read how this programme helped SSE Fellows, Annie Berrington from Get Out More and Esther Smith from the St Nicks Centre for Nature and Green Living,  develop and grow their environmental organisations.

The application window opens in April 2021: Register your interest below to be alerted when recruitment goes live.

We recognise that discrimination of all sorts infiltrates every part of our society, and we are working hard to counter that wherever we find it. We actively encourage applications from organisations that represent underrepresented groups. No educational qualifications are needed to join our programmes – just ambition and a desire to make a difference.

We look forward to hearing from you.
