Coventry City Council - Business Support Programme

Social enterprises in Coventry are making a valuable contribution to our neighbourhoods, local economy and the environment.

In conjunction with our partners on the Business Support programme we want to see even more develop and that’s why we are so passionate about helping social enterprises/community businesses to succeed.

We have been awarded a contract to deliver social enterprise support in Coventry until 31 March 2025, this includes support for pre start-up, start-up and existing social enterprises that want to grow.

This project is funded by the UK government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund  (UKSPF). For more information, please visit UK Shared Prosperity Fund page.
