ACS Social Enterprise is ACS’ Community Interested Company (CIC). Established in 2021, it was set up as a separate company from ACS to give us more flexibility to give back to our local community.
Since its inception in 2021 our colleagues have raised over £8,000 for the Social Enterprise Scheme, which has enabled us to support a number of good causes within the local area. We have also taken on an ongoing volunteering project throughout the year with Hirst Wood Nature Reserve.

The ACS Social Enterprise aims to support work that will make a positive difference to the lives of people from Bradford and its surrounding areas. Applications can be submitted from locally based groups and organisations for a grant of up to £1,000.
We’re accepting applications from organisations that have a positive impact on communities in Bradford and the surrounding areas. We intend to respond to applications within 12 weeks of receipt. However, due to the number of applications we receive we regret that we might not be able to respond to each one.
