Power to Change
Marsh Farm Futures (MFF) has been selected by Power to Change, an independent charitable trust that supports and develops community businesses in England, to carry out its Empowering Places Programme over the next five years. The agreed purpose of the grant is to:
- Identify and develop individuals/groups that have the potential to set up locally based community businesses
- Develop good relationships with stakeholders and partners and to engage and build community capacity
- Engage actively in the Empowering Places Programme
The grant offer from Power to Change will support MFF to develop one of its strategic objectives, to engage the local community, identify key issues with an aim to build a movement, and create a conductive environment where community business can flourish and transform places.
Power to Change’s funding is used to strengthen community businesses across England. At a time when many parts of the UK face cuts, neglect and social problems, we are helping local people come together to take control, and make sure their local areas survive and stay vibrant.
