Our vision

A world where all investments help improve the lives of people and build a fair society.

Child


Big Society Capital exists to improve the lives of people in the UK through investment with a sustainable return.

We are the leading social impact-led investor, restless for change.

Working with expert partners, we seek to understand people’s needs first. Then, using our knowledge and capital, we collaborate and invest with fund managers who also want to create a better, sustainable future.

They, and the social enterprises and charities they invest in, create the impact. Our role is to bring the most relevant experts from our network to the table, generating ideas and connecting capital to where it’s most needed.
