UnLtd is the foundation for social entrepreneurs. We find, fund and support social entrepreneurs to get started and then scale their ventures, all of which address major social challenges in the UK. Last year, we backed over 450 social entrepreneurs, with 83% feeling more able to act for social change and 93% growing their impact and revenue; they improved the lives of over 333,000 beneficiaries.
We’re also helping to shape the policy and investment environments that will enable social entrepreneurs to thrive. Our current impact areas are building access to employment for those far from the labour market, developing solutions for an ageing society, and fostering resilient communities.
