A BIG THANK YOU TO NATIONAL LOTTERY
Sirlute is thrilled to announce we have received support from Social Enterprise Support Fund to curate creative programmes for young people in London.
This grant has allowed us to push forward with new and exciting programmes to offer, including, Drama, Fashion and Graphic Design. These programmes are led for a period of time from an industry expert. We want our young people to excel at what they love and this allows for them to join us in an open, safe space with like minded peers, share ideas and grow their knowledge.
The most important part of this - of course - is that the grant allows us to provide these incredible classes at cost free enabling young people at risk to take advantage of skills that are not easily accessible anywhere else.
The Social Enterprise Support Fund provides essential financial support to help
social enterprises during COVID-19. It will help us to meet additional
demands, change the way we work, make our spaces COVID-secure, and
manage liquidity during the next six months.
The Social Enterprise Support Fund was established in partnership by The National
Lottery Community Fund and five social enterprise support agencies: Big Issue
Invest, The Key Fund, Resonance, the School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) and
UnLtd with support from CAF Venturesome, the Young Foundation and Ashoka.
Thanks to National Lottery players, £18.7 million of National Lottery funding has
been committed to the fund to be used to provide grants to social
enterprise organisations that are best placed to support local, vulnerable
communities in response to the COVID-19 crisis. This is exactly what we aim to do, young people that have not had the opportunity or need a second chance at reaching their potential, we are here to provide it to them.
Thanks to #NationalLottery players for making this possible.
