Brand for Growth is an opportunity for social enterprises with high impact potential but with limited resources to take some time out and receive in-depth technical support, from a team of experienced graphic designers, to consider their branding. Funded by the Scottish Government as part of the 3 year Social Enterprise Action Plan ‘Building a Sustainable Social Enterprise Sector,’ Brand for Growth is a competitive programme aimed at ambitious social enterprises who can bring something to the table themselves even if that is just time, passion and commitment. The programme is being delivered by BOLD, part of the Community Enterprise family.

Testimonial from a previous participant : “This has been a really positive experience for us that came at the perfect time in our development as an organisation. We have rebranded from Dundee Association for Mental Health to Wellbeing Works, and the feedback we have had on the rebrand is fantastic. The people who attend our projects have said it's a better fit for who we are and what we do, and has really helped with our own strategy of making the shift from focussing on mental illness to wellbeing. It's also great to have a brand that is easily recognisable, transferable and is also clean and current. You might have gathered that I am delighted with it!” CEO, Wellbeing Works
