Growth Fund

We want to do more.

There are so many effective charities, doing great work in the community. We want to support them with seed-money to grow their enterprise or projects. We aim to award up to £10,000 to worthy recipients.

Our first winner is Emma Freivogel, Founder at Radical Recruit. Her enterprise bridges the gap between disadvantaged job seekers and the business world. In the nine months of their existence, Radical Recruit have placed 47 people released from prison into permanent employment and was our unanimous choice. 

“I am chuffed mate! £10k goes a long way – it’s three months operating costs and we are aiming to get 15 more ex-offenders into work using the dosh so I am delighted!” – Emma Freivogel

Growth Fund: HOW DOES IT WORK?

Our advisory committee selects charities, social enterprises or CICs we think are eligible. We then send them an application form to complete, prior to making a final decision.

The Fund is managed by the Barrow Cadbury Trust who oversee the application forms, from which we pick the winning recipient.
The number of charities we can support each year, is dependent on the level of fundraising we are able to secure each year. But our aim, is to help at least two charities a year- and more if possible!

how can you help?

We aim to award 2 charities a year – or more – with funds of up to £10,000.

This is directly related to how much money we can raise each year for our Growth Fund.

Please help us reach our goal of raising £50,000 by 2023.

From donating directly, to choosing us as your charity of choice for fundraising events, we welcome your support in any way.
