Show Notes

There is a growing requirement for the charity and social enterprise sector to support a wide range of societal issues and a real opportunity for the sector to become more enterprising by generating more income so it can achieve more. 

This episode explores the nature and benefits of blended finance, based on Access’ learning that capital without blend will fail to meet the needs of many charities and social enterprises. This in-depth discussion explores the concept of what the ‘perfect blend’ might be and how to achieve it, providing inspirational examples and case studies along the way.
