24 October | SASC is an Access Point

SASC has been selected as an Access Point for the Reach Fund, a two year £4m investment readiness grant programme, funded by the Access – The Foundation for Social Investment and managed by Social Investment Business.

What is the Reach Fund?

The Reach Fund will test a new model of investment readiness support to help charities and social enterprises raise investment.  This fund is investor led, which means that organisations apply through potential investors, who will be offering guidance and advice along the application process.

The Reach Fund will offer small grants (average £15,000) to charities and social enterprises who are looking to raise investment with one of the Fund’s approved social investors – Access Points – of which SASC is one.

How do you apply?

If you are looking for social investment please contact us via phone or email or via our website to discuss your investment needs.

If we feel you need further support then we can refer you directly to the Reach Fund. A member of our Investment team will work with you to identify your needs, develop an investment readiness plan, and apply for a grant.  If successful SASC can suggest appropriate external providers to support you to become ‘investment ready,’ and get the process of strengthening your organisation underway.
