Benenden Hospital Trust, approached us to help secure investment to redevelop its hospital in rural Kent. We were approached to make the case to unlock £50m of investment from its charitable parent, Benenden Society. We were able to present this investment in a way that was comparable to other investments the Society routinely makes, such as stock market and property investments. This approach enabled the Society to provide full approval. “Social Investment is a developing area. Encouragingly, thinking on how to invest to both deliver a charity’s aims as well as a financial return has moved forward, with new powers in the Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act 2016.”

Neil Rutledge, Director, Amberside Advisors Ltd “Appointing Amberside to help us access over £50m of charitable funding for our new hospital development was the right choice – they understood our world, suggested ways to overcome issues, and were always responsive.”
