FUNDING AND DEVELOPMENT
Social investment is a financial tool, usually a loan, which balances financial repayments with social impact.
Many of the challenges our young people experience are complex and embedded, requiring a longer-term solution. Our social investment programme provides patient capital to support organisations to grow and develop.
Eligibility to our social investment programme is wider than for our grants programmes, though our geographical preferences and improving outcomes for young people remain our overall objectives. We are an access point for the reach fund, so can provide support to take a fledgling idea into a robust business plan.
