Our impact

We see a future where enterprising people are transforming our world for good.

To achieve this future we find people with bold solutions to today's challenges. Through funding and support, we help them to realise their potential and create lasting change. We call these people social entrepreneurs.

How we help



Acting for social change

The funding and support we give enables entrepreneurs to create the impact they want to see in the world. 83% of our entrepreneurs felt more able to create social change after working with us.



BAME entrepreneurs

It's important that opportunities to create change are open to everyone, from all backgrounds. While just 5% of SMEs are run by Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people, 28% of our awards went to BAME social entrepreneurs, up from 23.5% in 2017/18.




Whether it’s providing access to employment for people locked out of opportunities, or increasing healthy life expectancy or building communities.



Investment leveraged

UnLtd’s funding enables entrepreneurs to unlock new investment opportunities. Our entrepreneurs raised a further £3m following their awards.



Women in leadership

59% of our awards were made to female entrepreneurs who are creating or running ventures to make real social change. In comparison just 20% of SMEs are run by women.



Award winners in most deprived areas

We know that local leaders have the commitment and knowledge to positively change their communities. That’s why we work in regions where our support is needed the most, so they have the resources to create lasting social change.
