Our approach
to social investment
Real Lettings - St Mungo's Broadway

There are many intractable social issues that affect people in the UK. Charities and social enterprises work to address these, but many can find it difficult to access repayable finance to develop sustainable delivery models or grow their services.

We expect to have £600 million of capital to invest in intermediaries to help change this.
