UnLtd have recently established an initiative to financially support and nurture social entrepreneurs looking to tackle the housing crisis and help build more resilient communities.
With financial awards of up to £15,000 to set up their projects, Social Entrepreneurs with distinct and innovative ideas are currently in the process of developing their ideas and some are raising additional funds via Crowdfunding in partnership with Just Giving.
