LEAP: Funding real food and farming businesses

The next round of LEAP funding is expected to launch in April 2023, so please register your interest.

We work with existing community food businesses to reach the next stage of their development. We support a wide range of governance structures, including Community Interest Companies (CICs), Community Benefit Societies (CBS), cooperatives, and Companies Limited by Guarantee (CLGs).

The programme cannot support sole traders, partnerships or Companies Limited by Shares (CLS), but we can work with you to consider your governance model and convert to one of the above.
