Empowering Places is Power to Change’s new £8M flagship Places programme that aims to demonstrate the role that concentrated clusters of community businesses can play in creating better places and reducing inequality in local areas.

Over the next five years, the Empowering Places programme will work closely with established community based organisations in seven local areas, providing them with the mix of grants, support and practical tools that they need to be catalysts for new networks of community businesses in their areas.

Through the delivery of a programme of capacity support - the process of developing and strengthening the knowledge, skills, abilities and resources of the catalysts and their wider community – catalysts will be equipped to accelerate the growth of community business and demonstrate the conditions required for community business to flourish in their areas.

We are inviting expert capacity support providers to apply to be part of this exciting programme.
