The Power to Change is an independent charitable trust, set up in January 2015 with a £150 million endowment from the Big Lottery Fund, to support, develop and grow community business across England. Grant funding from £50,000 to £500,000 is available for community businesses in England. In assessing applications they consider aspects including community control and the social, economic and environmental outcomes.

Across England community businesses are bringing a new sense of prosperity and pride to local people. Yet many find it a struggle to access the finance they need to start or grow their community business. Power to Change is committed to addressing this need by providing a range of funding options.
