This research is conducted by Groundwork South Yorkshire and funded by The Connect Fund which is managed by the Barrow Cadbury Trust.

We want to hear from Charities, Social Enterprises and Voluntary Sector organisations seeking social investment; this can include enterprises wanting to grow their business and/or develop a trading entity to supplement existing trading activities.

Our role is to research existing barriers to access social investment and provide high-quality support to the boards of organisations to meet the significant challenges involved in accessing social investment in the current environment.

A key part of this approach is to gather information through the below survey to understand your organisation and its financial needs. We will run workshops (Feb-Sept 2019) to work with your boards to improve the understanding about available social investment opportunities and provide 1-1 support to help you access investment.
