The Communities Fund

The Communities Fund

Scape Reinvest is a unique social investment fund. It is designed to benefit our clients’ communities by returning modest surpluses to community projects.


New Business Start-Up and the Encouragement of Entrepreneurial Talent amongst Young People leading to economic growth potential.

Small to medium enterprises form the backbone of our economy. We also recognise that individuals need support and encouragement to take that first step, irrespective of their background, age or experience.

However, there is a significant gap between entrepreneurial potential and entrepreneurial activity in the UK compared to other countries – our aim is to help close this gap.
