We know that supporting the social investment sector’s infrastructure is a critical part of building this ecosystem for the long term. Hence we have committed 10% of our endowment to directly fund social investment and broader voluntary and social enterprise infrastructure to better meet the needs of charities and social enterprises.
This is delivered for us by our partners Barrow Cadbury Trust via the Connect Fund. With a particular focus on catalysing new networks, products and support from the infrastructure sector which helps meet the enterprise development and finance needs of the sector, The Connect Fund plays a key role in helping Access achieve its objectives for our enterprise development programme.
