The scheme recognises that social ventures are facing huge challenges: the prolonged effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, an increased demand for services, a global recession and the end of short-term government support.

Recognising these pressures, the final round is open to organisations with an annual income of between £20,000 and £1.8m. It is offering grants of between £10,000 and £300,000.
