As well as the mainstream support available to all business start-ups there are some initiatives and organisations designed for social entrepreneurs:
- Social Enterprise NI is a central meeting point for social enterprises in Northern Ireland where they can collaborate, share knowledge, information and best practice to create real social change. You can also keep track of latest events and news relating to social enterprises.
- The Ulster Community Investment Trust (UCIT) provides free advice and loans.
- The NI Council for Voluntary Action (NICVA) is a source of advice, support and training, as well as providing signposts to other support bodies.
