2022 was a year with significant macroeconomic uncertainty, as well as the ongoing aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic. These external conditions have exacerbated many of the social issues we seek to tackle and have resulted in increased demand on many of the organisations, including social enterprises and charities, that we support through our capital.

In 2022 we grew the amount of capital tackling social issues and inequalities in the UK, through our investments and by enabling others to invest us alongside us. This capital has financed social purpose organisations addressing everything from homelessness to mental health and fuel poverty.
