We help you provide support quickly, seamlessly and securely

Lightning Reach enables charities, local authorities, housing, utility and financial services providers to reach and provide support to vulnerable individuals more effectively.


Why work with Lightning reach?

Our one-stop platform empowers individuals to engage with your services and access a wide range of personalised support (grants, benefits, help with bills and more).

Using innovative technology, we help your teams to save time administering support, reach more people eligible for the help you offer, reduce fraud and increase your impact.


Join us in transforming the complex ecosystem of support and simplifying the process for everyone involved.

“The Lightning Reach portal brings huge benefits to the sector, particularly in simplifying processes for the people we support. Our turnaround time has gone from around 4 weeks to 2-3 days.”
