We look forward to working alongside all elected representatives across national, regional and local government to deliver tangible economic and social change at pace by supporting charities and social enterprises that take entrepreneurial approaches to tackling social problems and creating jobs and growth.

Reflecting on the outcome of the UK General Election, Seb Elsworth, chief executive of Access – the Foundation for Social Investment said:

 “Real and lasting change happens when government and communities work together – we stand ready to support the new government as they look to jump-start growth and deliver on their five missions.”

“Charities and social enterprises are central to this – not least in removing barriers to growth through addressing long-term unemployment, tackling poverty, and supporting communities to adapt to climate change.

“A key early opportunity for the new Government is to quickly allocate the next wave of Dormant Assets funding so that we can continue to finance vital community organisations.”
