First Steps Enterprise Fund (FSEF) is a £300,000 pilot fund to support community organisations. We manage this fund on behalf of the ASDA Foundation. Funding packages of up to £30,000* are available (90% loan and 10% grant). The loan element is charged at 5% (fixed) to be repaid over a period of 4 years with an optional capital holiday for the first year.
The Fund aims to support people aged 60+ and can consider community projects that focus on supporting health and well being, tackle social isolation or help people to learn a new skill/develop an interest.
Charity Escapes is a holiday website with a difference. Not only do we offer a wide range of really special properties but when you book with us, some (if not all) of the money you pay goes to a good cause. So, just by booking a holiday you are helping a charitable cause!
Charity Escapes is delighted to be working with a small number of charities who are doing some amazing things. We’ve listed some of our charity partners below with some more details about what they do and how they spend money raised from selling Charity Escapes.

Have you ever thought about fundraising through Legacies? It can be a difficult subject to introduce, but it can also be very beneficial as a way of raising funds, and awareness of your work.
There is a ‘Small Fundraisers’ group which meets regularly to discuss ways to support each other with fundraising information and look at innovative fundraising ideas.
The group are hoping to design a resource which would help small charities in Wirral to initiate discussions with their beneficiaries regarding legacies, and which would be a practical way of including Legacy funding within their fundraising strategy.
