The Reach Fund provides support to charities and social enterprises who are already close to the point of taking on social investment. In order to apply to the fund, an organisation must be referred by a social investor registered with the fund, known as an ‘Access Point’.
The most recent evaluation of the Reach Fund took place in 2021. That year the programme was extended for the second time so will now continue to run until 2025/26.
All the details about how to apply, including a list of active Access Point social investors, is available on the website of Social Investment Business who manage the programme.
You can also see a summary of grants made via the Reach Fund on our Quarterly dashboards. The figures below are from March 2022
