The objective of the SED Fund is to find and back social enterprises that add to the social and economic fabric of their community and make a positive social impact. The SED Fund provides critical support to the most innovative and impactful social enterprises across Ireland, helping to bolster their social impact, increase their traded income, create more jobs and develop long-term, effective and sustainable solutions.

The SED Fund offers cash grants, designated business supports, as well as a place on Ireland’s only National Accelerator Programme specifically designed for social enterprises. The Accelerator Programme is designed to equip social enterprises with the tools and techniques they need to expand their business skills and deepen their impact

Rethink Ireland


Recycle IT was part of the Social Enterprise Development Fund in 2021 and it was just what our team needed to move forward with our development. Our social enterprise wouldn’t be at a new stage of business development today if it wasn’t for Rethink Ireland’s support and consultancy assistance.

Rethink Ireland helped source specialist advice by finding the right person with the right skills to help our social enterprise think differently and addresses challenges such as strategic planning. Rethink Ireland can support your social enterprise with grants and assistance by sourcing a specialist to address your area of interest.

Apply Today!

To date, Rethink Ireland has provided €9 million in cash grants and business support to over 100 social enterprises in every county of Ireland. The team at Rethink Ireland believe social enterprises can lead the transition to a more inclusive, sustainable and green economy.

You can apply on Rethink Ireland’s website and you too could join the over 100 social enterprises like ours that have benefitted from the funding, Accelerator Programme and consultancy support.
