Final deadline for Mutuals Support Programme applications

It’s the final week for those who are Public Service Mutuals, or aspire to be, to apply for support in the Mutuals Support 2 programme.

Two EOA members Baxendale and Bates Wells Braithwaite are part of consortiums that offer professional advice and support across areas including legal, financial, business planning, marketing, HR and organisational change, bid writing and measuring social value.

Members of both consortia – Go Mutuals and Mutual Ventures consortium – have been selected through a competitive procurement process, and have extensive experience of supporting new Mutuals to develop, and existing ones to thrive.

The closing date for applications is Friday, 22 February. Visit the Mutuals Support Programme 2 more information including eligibility criteria and how to apply use this link.

Deb Oxley, Chair of the EOA, said: “The EOA is delighted to see Government support for the mutuals sector through the Mutuals Support Programme 2 and we hope those who can take advantage of the support. The government support fits with recommendations in the report the Ownership Dividend report to support the growth or existing and new public service mutuals to keep apace with demand.”
