Reach Fund

Before you apply for social investment, you need to be investment ready. We know that takes time, a little help and a little investment. That’s where the Reach Fund comes in.

The Reach Fund is a grant programme that acts as a stepping stone to apply for social investment. We are an access point to the Reach Fund. Up to £15,000 grant funding is available to help you become investment ready.

Our team can help you to identify areas to strengthen your organisation, making it more attractive to social investors. We will work with you to create an investment readiness plan and apply for funding through the Reach Fund.
