Growing the social impact investment market
Our mission is to grow the amount of money invested in tackling social issues and inequalities in the UK. We do this by investing ourselves and enabling others to invest for impact too.
Since 2011, we have helped the social impact investment market grow eleven-fold to over £9bn. This capital has financed social purpose organisations tackling everything from homelessness to mental health and fuel poverty.
