March Newsletter

March has been a busy month with some exciting announcements and many opportunities for social enterprises.  We have our usual information on what’s going on for social entrepreneurs around Scotland, so read on to find out more! As always, let us know any feedback and comments.


What we’ve been up to


Our Chair, Barry Ayre, is pleased to announce that the board has appointed Karen McGregor as Chief Executive of Firstport.


We are also very pleased to announce that the Social Entrepreneurs Fund, which we manage on behalf of the Scottish Government, has been extended for another year.  This fund is open to individuals who have an idea for a social enterprise and offers start up grants up to £5000 and £20,000. Level 1 is ongoing and Level 2 has 3 deadlines: 1st June, 31st August and 12th October. For more information, visit our funding website.
