Power to Change

TTA goes to the School for Social Entrepreneurs!

Our Community Benefit Society will receive a “Match Trading” grant of up to £10,000. Match Trading is a new type of funding for socially-led organisations. It matches an increase in sales pound-for-pound, incentivising social entrepreneurs to find ways to earn more money, which they use to help more people in the community or the environment.

Funded by Power to Change the School for Social Entrepreneurs describes itself thus:

We can’t fix issues like poverty, climate change and ill-health alone. That’s why the School for Social Entrepreneurs exists.

We help 1,000 people a year develop the skills, strengths and networks they need to tackle society’s biggest problems. We run courses that equip people to start, scale and strengthen organisations that make a positive difference. But we’re not a traditional school. Learning with SSE is inspiring, action-based and accessible. We support people in other ways too, such as funding and mentoring.

Lord Michael Young founded SSE in 1997, and we’ve grown to a network of schools across the UK, Canada and India.

Together, we’re changing lives and transforming communities.

Sandra Allen, the Company Secretary of The Thorold Arms Community Benefit Society Limited, is one of 80 leaders across England to have been selected for the competitive learning programme and the Match Trading grant.
