Making Enterprise Happen offers investment packages of between £61,000 and £500,000 to social enterprises, community organisations and charities to develop and expand their enterprising activities.
Making Enterprise Happen investments are always part grant and part loan. The split of grant and loan will be negotiated during the assessment process, taking into account the potential social impacts, ability to repay and current State Aid regulations (if applicable). Loans are repayable over up to ten years and are charged at a fixed interest rate of base rate (currently 0.75%) plus 6%.
Resilient Scotland aims to help you to make enterprise happen by investing in organisations providing key services to local people, purchasing community assets, and shops and cafes bringing vibrancy back to local high streets.
