Welcome to the Connect Fund Expression of Interest form

The Connect Fund has been set up to strengthen the social investment market in England to better meet the needs of charities and social enterprises. We provide grants and social investments to develop shared infrastructure resources for a market that supports mission. We fund tools, partnerships and initiatives that advance a more open and accessible social investment market.

This form is the initial application for grant funding and social investment from the Connect Fund, previously known as the 'Social Investment Infrastructure Fund.' The fund is managed by the Barrow Cadbury Trust in partnership with the Access Foundation. We strongly recommend that you read the funding guidance to determine eligibility and to inform the suitability of your request for funding.

This form is not intended for enquiries about social investment. If you are interested in repayable finance, please see Good Finance for further information. You can also send us an email or contact us by telephone on 0207 632 9060 with any queries.

Following the submission of your enquiry, we will review the information you have provided. We will contact you to invite a full application should we seek to progress your proposal to the next stage.
