The Clackmannanshire Family Wellbeing Partnership launched an investment fund of £75k to help our citizens turn ideas into action. The fund allows the public to put ideas forward to improve the lives of families across Clackmannanshire.
We partnered with The Lens to build on the success of the first Clackmannanshire Family Wellbeing Partnership Intrapreneurship Programme. This programme was designed to give all the support the public need to develop their ideas.
Applications are now closed.
The shortlisting process has been completed and 10 ideas are currently progressing through the developing workshops.
You can find out more about the ideas via our recent press release.
Simply put, ‘intrapreneurship’ is acting like an entrepreneur within an organisation.
We know that it is often the people closest to the problem who have the best ideas. The fund and idea development programme are open to all across Clackmannanshire.
Ideas will be shortlisted by a panel of members from the Family Wellbeing Partnership. If your idea is shortlisted, The Lens will help you develop the tools, skills and confidence you need to pitch for investment from this fund.
By helping you develop the skills and mindset of an entrepreneur, our team will help you turn your idea into action, improving people’s livelihoods in the process. Through practical workshops, coaching and peer support, we’ll ensure you have everything you need to ask for funding and turn your idea into a reality.
Applications for this round of funding closed on 27th January 2023.
The Lens is an independent charity that works with organisations across the Public, Private and Third Sectors.
Founded in 2015, The Lens team have over seven years’ experience delivering support to organisations that want to better their services and by extension, the lives of those who access them. They strongly believe that those closest to the problem are the best equipped to solve it, so a key part of their work is providing frontline staff and volunteers the opportunity to feedback on services and share their ideas on how to improve them.
