We're delighted to announce the relaunch of Good Finance - a website to help charities and social enterprises better navigate the social investment market. Kieran Whiteside, Project Manager of Good Finance, discusses what the new site aims to do and next steps.
The general election is approaching. As campaigning intensifies, attention is shifting back to local constituencies. For social investment to maintain its support, it needs to be able to show how it is making an impact on the ground in constituencies across the country. And it needs key decision-makers, like MPs, to know how and where it is making a difference. New data we’ve obtained suggests that there are already 70 different constituencies across the country benefitting as a result of our social investments - so there’s a story to be told.
