In 2018 we were successful in gaining investment from the Social Business Growth Fund. The aim of the fund is to support social businesses in Wales financially, to enable them to grow and create job opportunities. SBGF is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund and Welsh Government and is administered by Social Investment Cymru, WCVA.
ProMo-Cymru used the investment to employ a full–time designer and communications assistant with the view to grow and develop the communication and design function within the organisation. This gave us the extra capacity needed to expand our offer, take on new clients and develop our expertise.
Over a period of 12 months, we successfully increased income generation in this area by over 10%.
