73 Degree Films has secured support from UnLtd, the UK’s foundation for social entrepreneurs.
The funding and tailored package of support from UnLtd will help the organisation make lasting social change in the community.
In particular UnLtd's support will allow Robert, Emmi and James to expand 73's community project plans over the next 12 months to help even more people in Wrexham and across North East Wales gain filmmaking experience.
Nas Morley, UnLtd Director of Partnerships & Influence, underlined the importance of the expertise and support on offer and said:
“Enterprising people are at the heart of so much positive change across the UK, so it’s wonderful for UnLtd to be able to provide support for this social venture. We hope that our tailored package of support will help to develop many more sustainable businesses that will deliver lasting social impact. We’re living in particularly challenging times, so some of these ideas and innovations are urgently needed.”
Robert Corcoran, founder of 73 Degree Films was very happy with today's announcement:
We've wanted to work with UnLtd for a long time because we know just how much they care about meaningful community projects and social entrepreneurship. I'm delighted that we're included in the latest round of award winners and I can't wait to work with Emmi and James to see what we can do.
UnLtd is working hard with partners from both the public and private sectors to help
deliver social impact by harnessing the huge potential of social entrepreneurs to
solve society’s biggest challenges. The organisation is focused on three big impact
areas; resilient communities, employability and solutions for an ageing society.
