Investment Readiness

We help charities and social enterprises to become investment ready and to secure the best package of finance to meet their needs, whether it’s money for a new site, refitting a building, or raising working capital to deliver a public sector contract.

Eastside Primetimers is an approved provider for a number of investment readiness funds that allow social organisations to access support and raise investment, including the Big Potential fund and the Access Foundation Reach Fund.

With a success rate of over 80%, we have helped all types of social organisations to secure investment and contracts totalling more than £60 million.
