About SE-Assist in Croydon

Croydon skylineSE-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.

Now in its second year, SE-Assist has expanded to Croydon. We will be offering social enterprises across 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

Applications will be open from 8 June 2015
