LEAP: Funding real food and farming businesses

Ready to apply?

The final LEAP application window is now open until 30 September 2022, so apply soon.

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.
