Hefce announces £2m fund to back social entrepreneurship

The Higher Education Funding Council for England has launched a £2 million programme to strengthen and broaden support for social entrepreneurship and social enterprise in universities and higher education colleges across England.

The programme, part of the 'UnLtd SEE Change, Social Entrepreneurship in Education' initiative, will be delivered by UnLtd, the leading provider of support to social entrepreneurs in the UK, and will encourage higher education institutions to act as ‘hubs’ to support social entrepreneurs beyond their staff and students, and to take the lead in supporting social inclusion and economic development in their communities.
