Partner with us to play a pivotal role in a passionate community dedicated to addressing global issues on a local scale and utilising our collective abilities for the betterment of people and the planet.
Lasting change comes from within
We believe in the importance of each person in our network and see a future where everyone can shape resilient, engaged, and environmentally-friendly communities.
Our purpose is simple: help local change-makers bring their big ideas to life. We are on a mission to ensure they have all the resources and belief needed to succeed.
We spark meaningful changes when we invest in people and their ideas. Through these changes, we’re building a world where people and the planet can flourish side by side.
The four pillars of our Enjoolata partnerships and different funding opportunities are designed to give you the support you need to thrive.
The four pillars of Enjoolata partnerships
At the heart of our funding philosophy lies a commitment to nurturing our partners’ individual welfare. We adopt a holistic and dynamic approach to support their growth, measuring success through wellbeing, community resilience, and societal and environmental impact.
Promoting personal wellbeing is essential; it lays the groundwork for organisational resilience, thoughtful decision-making, sustained motivation, and effective communication. We support our partners with team wellbeing activities, emphasising the need to care for themselves.
We believe in flexible funding with no barriers and are dedicated to continuous improvement. We consistently review and enhance the accessibility of our application process.
When local or global emergencies arise, we don’t just react; we respond with urgency, providing immediate support and funding to address our partners’ needs. Moreover, we actively champion our partners by match-funding fundraising initiatives and sponsoring a variety of local events, celebrating the vibrant tapestry of our community.
Collaboration and partnerships
At Enjoolata, we embrace the incredible power of belonging and community. We passionately believe in the transformative magic of partnerships to create a profound impact. To bring our vision to life, we host relaxed and welcoming events in both Lewes and Brighton. These gatherings provide a platform for people to come together, share ideas, foster collaboration, and connect with fellow community members.
At the core of our philosophy is the belief that nurturing a culture of continuous learning is essential for fostering innovation. Our goal is to empower our network with a diverse set of skills, enabling them to craft creative solutions and strengthen their communities.
Our skill-building support includes engaging online sessions, dynamic presentations, and hands-on workshops, offering a comprehensive approach to skill development. Get the latest updates by following us on Facebook and Instagram or subscribing to our mailing list.
