Action West London has won a place on a national Scale Accelerator programme.
We are very excited that Action West London has won a place on a national Scale Accelerator programme run by global non-profit consultancy @Spring Impact which helps charities and social enterprises to reach more people and maximise impact.
The National Lottery Community Funded programme will provide £30,000 of consultancy to scale up and replicate AWL’s successful Acton Street Market. AWL’s ‘community market’ model provides opportunities for self- employment for local people, promotes High street regeneration and brings people from West London’s diverse communities together. The Scale Accelerator programme is a great opportunity to develop the model so we can offer it to other areas at a time when self employment opportunities and street Markets are needed more than ever.
Hannah Barker, Scale Accelerator Programme Manager at Spring Impact said: “Congratulations to Action West London for their well-deserved success in joining the Scale Accelerator. Helping more people access life-changing social innovations is more important than ever, as the covid-19 crisis continues to impact on the lives of the most vulnerable in our society’
