28 Dec Starting Up a Social Enterprise in Greenwich
We’re a social enterprise based in Greenwich.
In August 2017 we received the fantastic news that TwistFizz C.I.C.’s founder Lyndall Newton-Early had been selected for the The Lloyds Bank Social Entrepreneurs Start Up Programme in partnership with the School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) and jointly funded by Big Lottery Fund.
Over the next year, Twistfizz C.I.C. will benefit from financial support in the form of a small grant to get the social enterprise up and running. Lyndall has access to a comprehensive learning support programme at the School for Social Entrepreneurs and will work with a business mentor from Lloyds.
Lyndall had this to say about the programme, “So far the learning support has been amazing and I’m especially enjoying networking with fellow entrepreneurs striving to make a difference in their communities”.
Being part of the programme will be a huge support as we strive to make a positive impact to the health and wellness of communities living nearby to Eltham Park South. We aim to grow the number of local people accessing parks sports and keep the facilities in great shape for future generations. Our goal is to work with the Royal Borough of Greenwich and other Local Authorities to ensure there are no barriers to sport in parks.
The partnership with the School for Social Entrepreneurs sits right at the heart of Lloyds Banking Group’s ambition to Help Britain Prosper. It is one of its flagship programmes designed to support social entrepreneurs in communities and, through them, help stimulate economic growth and regeneration across the UK.
