SEDA Catalyst Awards

Last year, Lochbroom Woodfuels was lucky enough to win a SEDA Catalyst Award which is funded by Santander and supported by UnLtd. Aimed at social enterprises, the award offers £5000 and a great support package to help grow the organisation. The support package includes tailored training, webinars with really good tutors, mentoring, and the opportunity to network with other social enterprises around the UK. It's a really valuable package that helped us refine our aims and objectives and grow the organisation.

The award programme is open now for 2015, deadline 10th April. I'd strongly advice other social entrepeneurs to apply!
