About SE-Assist in Croydon
SE-Assist is an innovative model where social enterprises can access funding and support from large businesses.
The initiative was successfully piloted in Brighton & Hove in 2013 and three social enterprises received the full SE-Assist package and one other a mentor from Legal & General.
SE-Assist offers social enterprises in Croydon the following support package:
£10,000 to £30,000 interest free loan
Mentoring from a Legal & General employee
Access to a bank of experts
The Social Investment Committee, which decides who receives the package of support, is made up of local social enterprise supporters:
- Nathan Elvery, Interim Chief Executive of Croydon Council
- Locally based employees of Legal & General and representatives from CAF
