What is Lightning Reach

Lightning Reach is a financial support portal which enables access to a range of personalised support (e.g. grants, benefits, help with their bills) - all in one place.

Founded during the pandemic, we aim to empower anyone to access support to build financial resilience and wellbeing.

Our platform can be used by a range of organisations to streamline or enhance the support they offer to individuals in (or at risk of) financially vulnerable circumstances.

“The portal is amazing, there is so much information. Without the portal, I would have never had help like this. There was so much support on there no one had told me about, which is fantastic.”

"Using the portal for our grants applications has allowed us to save time for both beneficiaries and our team. Thanks to Lightning Reach we have also been able to roll out our targeted grants programme, again saving huge amounts of time for the team, the grant application arrives complete, with all checks done ready for our team to process."
