Flexible, blended finance

Launched in May 2017, the Homeless Link Social Investment Fund has, over three years, £4.5m to invest in charities and social enterprises working to reduce homelessness across England.

Our aim is to test and learn where social investment can be most effectively used alongside other forms of funding to improve outcomes. We are looking to support organisations to:

  • increase the homelessness sector’s knowledge and experience of social investment
  • develop new models for income generation and funding
  • improve their long-term sustainability

The Homeless Link Social Investment Fund is provided through the Growth Fund, which is managed by Access-the Foundation for Social Investment with funding from the National Lottery Community Fund and Big Society Capital.

Reach Fund:  If you need extra help to develop an investment readiness plan, we can offer you a route to grant funding to spend on the support you need. The Reach Fund is funded by Access – The Foundation for Social Investment and managed by Social Investment Business
