Scale Up Programme

Jacqueline Hollows, founder of social enterprise Beyond Recovery, is celebrating her successful application for The Lloyds Bank Social Entrepreneurs Scale Up Programme. The Scale Up Programme is run in partnership with the School for Social Entrepreneurs and jointly funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.

Jacqueline, who was thrilled to win a place on the coveted School for Social Entrepreneurs Trade Up programme back in 2018, feels very fortunate to be a student on the Scale Up programme now. As such, she is receiving the support of the Scale Up programme and its partners, who are funding her place and also the Trade Back grant.

Trade Back Grant

The School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) created Trade Back – a new type of grant that incentivises social organisations to trade while supporting them to recover and rebuild – in response to the economic crisis.

Trade Back draws on the learning from Match Trading® grants, which launched in 2017 and have supported 500+ social organisations, increasing their income on average by 2.5 times compared to those receiving traditional grants. Unlike a Match Trading grant, Trade Back takes the economic impact of the Covid-19 crisis on income from trading amounts into account. Trade Back grants match ‘pound-for-pound’ any increase in trading income above Covid period levels.

Trade Back has been developed by SSE and a Task Force of 20+ social sector funders and support organisations.

Receiving support

Jacqueline commented: “I am so grateful to have been awarded a place on the Scale Up programme. Being supported by the programme and its partners will make a huge difference to Beyond Recovery, allowing us to continue to provide invaluable wellbeing support to many people in prison and within the community.”
