Helping social businesses to grow and thrive

Because we understand where new enterprises have come from, Stepping Out is able to offer business development support that truly reflects where new social businesses are and what they need to do to kick on. 

Ask us about:

Interim and Board Appointments - using our network to identify key individuals with the skills and experience to drive you forward. 

Bid writing and tendering support - giving you access to brilliant bid writers to work with you on specific tenders or to review your in-house business development functions. 

Growth strategy and Organisational Review – helping you target growth and identifying ways to restructure for greater efficiency and develop a more commercial culture.  


Investment and Contract Readiness Fund

We are an approved provider for the ICRF, a government fund that aims to ensure social ventures are better equipped to secure new forms of investment and compete for public service contracts.

Grants are made to social ventures that have the potential for high growth and delivering positive social impact for the purchase of specific capacity building support to help facilitate that growth.
