Big Society Innovation Bank - Deadline for Expressions of Interest Extended: Friday 27 July
It’s time to re-open Barnet’s Big Society Innovation Bank. Round One of the Innovation Bank has already funded eight projects which you will see up and running this year.
In Round Two, we continue to seek local solutions to local challenges and will be working even harder to find new ways of doing things. We will be focusing on three areas, further details of which will be published soon:
- enabling residents who need that extra bit of support to become more resilient and take control of their lives
- finding local solutions to emerging community problems (which may be social, economic or environmental)
- skills and employment
We are looking for people who can contribute both to re-thinking some of the local challenges we face and to designing and implementing the solutions. We will be pre-selecting people to take part (see Round Two timetable) and will provide expert help with the innovation process, as well as other technical backup. If you are enthusiastic about finding new ways to tackle social issues, watch here for further details of how you can take part!
Expressions of Interest can be submitted between Monday 11 June (5pm) to Friday 27 July 2012.
