REACH Local is working with local businesses to build a more inclusive economy in Oxfordshire. Profits generated by the REACH Magazine are invested back into the community. We provide micro-grants to cover startup costs or free advertisement opportunities for the excluded entrepreneurs we work with to start their businesses.

AFTER KNOWING A BRAND’S VALUES
Advertise your brand with REACH Local. Show your customers that you support the local community and are a socially driven business.
Small micro-grants of £200 are made available to cover essential startup business costs for clients. This can be spent on things like business insurance, branding and logo design, web hosting and domain purchase, accountancy, business registration, and tools
Excluded entrepreneurs are invited to be featured in our magazine and digital platforms. With this, they can grow their business reach and embed themselves more in the local community. A large proportion of the entrepreneurs we support struggle to use social media making these advertorials an important part of growing their business.
Branded digital Showcase
PODTech, our parent company offers free digital training to excluded entrepreneurs in Oxfordshire. However, the client group we support may lack the skills or finance to run and maintain their own website. REACH offers a free digital showcase for these individuals to take their business online.
