Applications sought from organisations that are transforming communities to scale up their work

Spring Impact has announced that applications are open until Wednesday 9 October for a new, issues-led Scale Accelerator, focused on scaling the impact of UK projects that help marginalised individuals facing multiple complex needs, like homelessness and substance abuse.

Backed by The National Lottery Community Fund since 2015, Spring Impact’s Scale Accelerator programme helps UK charities and social enterprises that are delivering community-transforming work scale their impact and change more lives, by providing vital support, skills and perspective.

Scale Accelerator is a tailored programme that helps mission driven organisations to scale their impact and change more lives. Participants benefit from an intensive programme of support that transforms their ambitious vision into a clear plan for meaningful action. Spring Impact starts by looking at an organisation’s mission, impact and change that it wants to scale up, rather than growth for the sake of it.

Spring Impact will bring together a group of six like-minded organisations for the next Scale Accelerator, with participants benefiting from an intensive programme of collaboration and support, using Spring Impact’s five-stage replication process to develop a strong scale strategy.

The launch of this pilot follows earlier news that the Scale Accelerator will be expanded across the next three and a half years, through £1.5 million in further funding from The National Lottery Community Fund.

Further information about the Scale Accelerator programme and how to apply can be found on the Spring Impact website (scroll down to the bottom of the page), where a link to the application form is also available.
