Social investment is often seen as a London-centric activity. It can be harder for charities and social enterprises outside of the capital to access social investors and gain a better understanding of the financial products available.
LET'S TALK GOOD FINANCE is a hub of regional social investment networks created to provide charities and social enterprises with a local safe space to know more about social investment and better navigate the market.
It offers charities and social enterprises the following opportunities:
To speak to charity and social enterprise leaders who have already accessed social investment
- To meet potential social investors
- To learn about new social investment initiatives, funds and instruments
- To be able to ask questions in a safe and non-judgemental space
- To understand more about when social investment is not suitable or appropriate

I genuinely found the seminar one of the most useful which I have been at in a long time. Thanks to Big Society Capital for your time and for your support to all of us who attended.
I thought it was a very useful event and brought up important insights – including the need for social finance providers and support organisations to work more closely together. I am definitely following up with the other local ones.
