About the Event
This session delivered by Karen Hobson of Key Fund will explore how your organisation can be more sustainable by diversifying its income sources. Rather than relying on grant funding or donations it will explore social investment, demystifying what it’s all about and helping organisations decide if social investment is the right fit for them whilst providing insight into the support available (financial and help) to access social investment. We will hear from speakers representing Rethink Food and Zest Leeds.
The course will cover:
- Social investment – What it is and how it works?
- What does blended finance actually mean?
- Support for third sector organisations, The REACH Fund: pre-investment support grants and key top tips to aid you in your journey into sustainability and exploring social investment
- Leeds based third sector organisations who have accessed social investment telling us about their experiences
There will be a tasty lunch and an opportunity to network towards the end of the session.
Suitable for charities and social enterprises looking to diversity their income through social investment in Leeds.
