Right now, the COVID-19 emergency is having a dramatic affect on every facet of our lives, communities and economy.
During this pandemic we need hope, togetherness and trust, which amazing individuals and community groups are stepping up to provide. UnLtd will get behind these efforts by finding, funding and supporting social entrepreneurs throughout the UK who are serving our local communities and combating isolation.
We will also support social entrepreneurs whom we have invested in – who are already contributing so much to our society and economy - but have been most severely affected by COVID-19. UnLtd’s social entrepreneur investees are all SMEs and all serving vulnerable communities. We will get behind these social entrepreneurs and help them not just survive this crisis, but go on to thrive once more as our country recovers together.
