UnLtd works in many different ways to support social entrepreneurs.
Since 2002 UnLtd has provided Awards, which are a package of early stage funding and support to individuals at the idea stage, backing thousands of people on their own ideas, and helping some to achieve big impact. Our support now includes finance, one-to-one support, networking and access to pro bono expertise, such as legal advice.
In 2010 we started to share our model with a range of partners with the aim of reaching far more people than we could alone, building a strong “ecosystem of support”. We now have a large number of partners who find, fund and support social entrepreneurs – partners like universities, colleges, community groups and housing associations.
We also do research, policy and advocacy work, to understand and develop a supportive environment for social entrepreneurs to start and thrive.
