The Foundational Economy Fund

The FE Challenge Fund is a national initiative by the Ministry for Economy and Transport that supports creative approaches for growing community prosperity. In 2019, Practice Solutions Ltd. secured funding to develop and launch Connect4SuccessRCT, an experimental pilot scheme to increase public sector investment in Rhondda Cynon Taf.

The fund is based on the Foundational Economy. This is the everyday economy of a local area: the necessary businesses that make a community thrive, such as hairdressers, taxis, builders, grocers etc.; and the public organisations that will always be there, like the council, health board and housing associations.

Our vision is to create a more collaborative community; businesses and public organisations working together to grow the local economy and improve community wellbeing.
