Generation Ireland announced as one of 8 awardees of Rethink’s Social Enterprise Development Fund.

On Thursday 11th August Rethink Ireland announced the 8 Awardees of its €530,000 Social Enterprise Development Fund. These Funds aim to support and develop social enterprises across Ireland who work primarily to improve the lives of people and communities

The Social Enterprise Development Fund (2018 – 2023) is a €4.4 million Fund created by Rethink Ireland in partnership with Local Authorities Ireland and funded by IPB Insurance and the Department of Rural and Community Development through the Dormant Accounts Fund that aims to discover and enhance social enterprises that are already creating a social and economic impact on their communities.

To date the Social Enterprise Development Fund has helped over 500 people gain employment through 112 social enterprises and has mobilised over 16,507 volunteers.

Generation Ireland plans to use the funding to help refine strategic ambitions for 2023, and to ensure we are able to reach those most in need of our support across Ireland
