The Resonance Bristol Social Investment Tax Relief Fund was set up to connect investors with businesses that have a social impact, taking advantage of the 2014 legislation offering tax breaks that encouraged such deals.
A pilot deal for this Fund, the first in the UK, involved FareShare South West, and this film shows how FareShare’s work of surplus food distribution was made more sustainable and less grant-dependent and they were able significantly to scale up their catering arm, “The Surplus Supper Club”.
Changing Views brought out the personal stories behind the project, to convey the huge impact FareShare is making on the lives of those who volunteer or work for the project.
The Resonance Bristol SITR Fund remains open for investment and to offer affordable loans to social enterprises. This film is one of a series of case studies made by Changing Views for Resonance and is used at business breakfasts with investment companies, IFAs and private investors.
